Pierre Guillaume’s Aqaysos, the newest addition in the Huitieme Art collection, is inspired by the faceted brilliance of crystal. Combining this lucent mineral with the light-absorbing opacity of woods is a particularly "Guillaumian" contradiction. Who else but Pierre Guillaume would enhance the quick fire bounce of crystal by juxtaposing it against a porous, retentive material like wood? This is not the watercolor translucence of Jean-Claude Ellena, but transparency done Guillaume-style, witty and paradoxical.
Thanks to the generosity of Pierre Guillaume Huitieme Arts, we have a 50 ml bottle of Aqaysos shown above for 1 registered reader in the U.S., Canada or Europe. The random winner is Dina. Please email michelyn at cafleurebon dawt com with AQAYSOS as your subject and your complete mailing and phone details by 3/24/2017 2:30PM EDT. This is a deadline and no exception if you are late.
