Todd Johnson: Sandblasted Blowfish (Hoplite)
Product Number: 002-194-0112
Todd Johnson's no stranger to the Blowfish shape, as we've seen a plethora of them over the years. This Fugu-style piece exhibits a tightly-controlled sense of gesture, coupled with an organic asymmetry a' la Tokutomi. Todd's kept the left flank fairly subdued in this case, allowing the right to present broad fin-like ridges at the aft and fore. Finished in a warm walnut sandblast, and with each crisply-defined line serving to succinctly highlight a different section of the grain's pattern, there's loads of visual and tactile interest to be found. Stellar work from Todd here.- Daniel Bumgardner
