Wojtek Pastuch: Smooth Dublin (1012)
Product Number: 002-811-0056
A graceful and stylized Dublin, this offering from Wojtek Pastuch exemplifies his appreciation for shape chart standards and his distinctive approach when crafting them. Often times, Pastuch imbues his Dublin shapes with a strong dose of creative whimsy, either through their shaping or his use of accenting materials. In this particular rendition, the Polish carver leaves it free of alternative mediums, instead using his shaping skill as a craftsman do all the necessary accenting. And he has certainly delivered in that regard, fashioning an exquisite and beautifully shaped piece. The bowl gradually flares up from the pointed heel along the base, terminating at the broad, gently inflated rim. The shank and stem are more slender in comparison to the bowl's proportions, serving in supporting roles which allows the bowl to remain the focal point of the composition. Said shank continues arrow straight before briefly flaring at the end, its slightly slanted, offset shaping perfectly mirrored by the stem's disc-shaped base. As for the finish, Pastuch has dressed the stummel in a rich, ruby stain, accentuating the flame grain patterns that lie underneath.- Jeffery Sitts
