Marking their Tenth Anniversary, the Lily Collection speaks of David Oscarson's gratitude for all that is virtuous, beautiful, and pure. In a world full of clouds and error, the Lily Collection reminds us of all that we hold precious, all that we hope for and all that we aspire to be.
The Lily Collection incorporates three levels of guilloché engraving and six colors of translucent and opaque hard enamel on each Collection piece. The entire body of each pen is first cut down to the level of the background, leaving the outer and inner lines of the lilies, pads, and leaves in high relief. The backgrounds are then kiln-fired with opaque hard enamel. The Lilies are the first Collection pieces to incorporate three colors of hard enamel onto one surface without separating each of them with dividing lines in high relief and the three colors of the daylilies graduate and gradate inconsistently, emulating nature’s unique ability to distinguish one lily from another.
