New Pipes: Maigurs Knets: Smooth Aussie Calla Lily  

Product Number: 002-519-0030

I recently wrote a blog entry on Maigurs's signature lush, graceful sense of Art Nouveau-inspired form and flow, and, as fate would have it, this coincided with the artisan himself sending us some of his most complex and beautiful pieces yet - this "Calla Lily" being one. Though the art style that inspires Maigurs might be more than a century old, this most certainly is not you grandfather's (or great, great-grandfather's) sitter. There is absolutely nothing even the slightest bit static or heavy about this freehand's smoothly soaring lines or rich, floral form; it has about as much in common with a flat-bottomed Oom Paul as Victor Horta's famed Belle Epoque staircase does with a freight elevator.

Maigurs might have been content with the flow of the piece's main body alone, but he clearly wasn't. The treatment the rim receives here is every bit as lavish, and the manner in which it winds downward to flow into the rest of the design serves as an elegant nod to the very flower this briar takes its name from.
