Frank Axmacher: Smooth Tomato (AA)
Product Number: 002-815-0013
Frank Axmacher's style is a combination of Danish and German influences, as well as his own sculptural style. The results are often a feat of optical illusions, and this Tomato is one of those. In profile, it's plump and broad, though from above we find that it's horizontally compressed, giving it broad flanks and a leaner figure with just the right amount of plumpness around the rim to keep things quite soft. At the rear, the oval shank tapers and flares toward the stem, all the while being quite low-profile, reinforcing its sleek silhouette. And as for the grain, Frank never disappoints with his eye for detail — there's flame for days, with plenty of tight birdseye on the rim, all dressed in a vivid contrast stain that gives it a fiery highlight.- Rachel DuBose
