New!  Maigurs Knets: Sandblasted Water Lily

Product Number: 002-519-0046

I haven't received word that Maigurs himself is calling this a series, but there's clearly a common theme going on with his Rose, Water Lily, and Camellia designs. Each feature a gentle, yet shapely nature in their basic layout of form, line, and contour, with the most distinctive variation being the patterns of the subtle, beautiful details he uses to suggest each bowl is the just-blossoming bud of the namesake flower.

Though this particular Water Lily bears a longer shank than the Rose or Camellia that we've seen, I couldn't say that it's definitely part-and-parcel for the shape. (It would make sense, though, given how a water lily's stem needs to extend to the surface of the water in which it grows.) Like the Rose it bears nothing more than three smooth, winding cuts that work perfectly to suggest petals just at the point of blooming. Where the bowl differs from the Rose is in the Reuleaux triangle, rather than circular rim-bevel, which works to give said "petals" themselves a suggestion of triangular form - like those of an actual water lily.
