Alex Florov: Partially Sandblasted Blowfish
Product Number: 002-354-0191
Balancing a stout, muscular form with complex, intentional lines, this piece from Alex Florov is an extremely powerful pipe in profile — with extra briar in the bowl, transition, and shank all giving the impression of mass, while Alex's array of ridges and edges and linework implies quick motion and lots of energy. Put simply, the resulting form of this Blowfish is really more like a Great White Shark: massive, yet still very agile, and a juggernaut when it comes to momentum.
While that deliberate power is put to good use shape-wise, those fast, sweeping lines also serve another function — namely, as strict, separating walls between sandblasted briar and smooth-polished, contrast stained briar. It's a gorgeous piece, and a great example of how Alex can really nail a muscular composition while still maintaining his signature three-dimensional dynamism.
