Le Creuset cook and bakeware is iconic in shape and color - often sporting a subtle ombre from light to dark. Among the maker's many, many offerings is a hidden treasure ~ one that receives little, if any, time in the tealight. The design of which I write is their leaning, lovely Ogive Kettle.
It's not surprising that Rural Modernists feel love at first sight. We're vulnerable to asymmetrical, inspired-by-architectue designs. Throw in some color and let the laws of attraction do their work.
Le Creuset's graphic interpretation of Medieval form/function is perhaps best described as Gothic Modern. It is suggestive rather than literal, more subtle than overt, and makes a final product that nods comfortably to kettle convention and aesthetic rebellion.
After boiling water in your Ogive, be sure to honor its difference with a solid, yet slanted, tea-holding vessel. Skewed triumphs over straight every time - it's Furniturea fact.
