Smooth Vase with Kingswood

Product Number: 002-633-0025

Though rare, there are Vases. While not quite as rare as a Vase, but still pretty thin on the ground, there are Tulips. Who else would think of creating a cross-pollination of the two forms, a "Tulip in a Vase", if you will, than Croatian carving iconoclast Daniel "Muki" Mustran?

As is the case of the majority Daniel's most ambitious work, upon first contact this Vase presents an almost overwhelming visual overload: a seeming multitude of shaping elements, fine grain and brilliant accessorizing materials, all vying for attention. After allowing a few seconds for your brain to adjust, comes the delight in realizing that Muki created all of this fascinating brain-tug through the deft use of a standard base shape (the straight Egg), plus two often-seen (but rarely partnered) neoclassical elements: side panels that flare at the zenith, and pronounced floral concavity to the rim, fully half of which is created by the simple presence of the first element. To my mind, a great part of Daniel's genius lies within his ability visualize the pairing of a standard geometric shape with two or three (again) standard, even classic element elections — but in a manner so unexpected that we find ourselves (unconsciously) recalibrating our pattern recognition "software". The new totality wrought by that reconfiguration is well worth a few seconds, don't you think?
