Alex Florov: Sandblasted Oyster
Product Number: 002-354-0198
The most understated of the Oysters we've seen from Alex Florov, this fellow is essentially a tightly-knit, gestural Blowfish, framed by pinched, fin-like ridges to the aft, near the transition. It sports a vertically compressed, lenticular shank, leading to a gently-downturned saddle stem, allowing for the eye to travel easily to its bulbous, forward-ebbing bowl. Unlike the traditional Blowfish, Alex has oriented this particular block to showcase a crisp and lightly-blasted display of rings, rather than the typical birdseye-focused orientation, and the neatly-chamfered, smooth ruby-stained rim offers a pleasant complement to it all. An excellent piece from Alex.
