Alex Florov: Smooth Tear of Aphrodite (Slonim)
Product Number: 002-354-0184
Funny thing is, over the three years we received several of Yuki's Teardrops, they grew progressively quieter, smoother, as edges were made softer and certain curves were made more gradual and gentle. Alex's is just the opposite - a stronger, bolder, wilder and crisper direction, with more flourish and edge by far than even the earliest of Yuki's. And this is just what we would expect from Florov, as "quiet" is seldom something he indulges in, when it comes to shaping. Complex drama is more his game.
