Alex Florov: Sandblasted Bent Tomato
Product Number: 002-354-0193
In contrast to the two Blowfish appearing in this same Alex Florov batch, here we find a shape of symmetrical nature, one of Alex's recent forays into simpler designs defined by smooth form and lines (the sandblasted Pear from back in February being another nice example). It comes as little surprise that a man who can handle smooth flow when it's twisting about a shape in three dimensions has no trouble doing the same in a design where it is expressed simply in silhouette: the curves and re-curves and complements of heel and shank, stem, and rear face and rim of bowl. The results, in this case, are a very pleasing — a broad, river-stone like bowl in hand, in a pipe that has a profile nonetheless downright lithesome.
