Estate Pipes: Italian Estate: Damiano Rovera Perla Smooth Paneled Pot with Silver Army Mount (OC)  

Product Number: 004-006-8959

To watch an artist change up their style or sound after years of consistency is always liberating, as I'm sure it is for the artist. For a brand like Ardor, never being bound to convention is more than a philosophy, I dare say it's their company policy. But it seems rather unusual for a pipe maker Damiano (Rovera the younger), the man behind the "Fantasy" series, with well over fifty pipes in our archive, all fully embracing the serpentine curves of the Pesaro--with barely even one flat plane or sharp angle to be seen-- to carve such a completely architectural piece such as this. Roughly octagonal (unusual), bearing a utilitarian military mount (a first), and small to boot (very unusual), it could be said that this is a very special piece for him, whether done long ago or more recently--here, even if for an instant, Damiano stepped out of his comfort zone and yet success still followed.
