Dasha Florov: Partially Sandblasted Acorn
Product Number: 002-797-0004
While her completely smooth and completely sandblasted pieces have already stunned us around the office, it's Dasha Florov's dual finishes that I find most impressive. Showcasing two distinctive facets of the block's natural beauty is just a great technique in its own right, but Dasha just takes the theme one further by using the stark contrast of color and texture to complement the design itself. Take this Acorn for example. By extending the dark, partial sandblast of the shank just a hair past the transition and into the aft of the bowl, Dasha's created a neat floral effect, the organically shaped, plateau-crowned Acorn bowl seemingly budding at the end of the shank and stem. It's excellent work, and sure to be the prize of some lucky smoker's collection.
