Estate Pipes: Japanese Estate: Tsuge Ikebana Smooth Bent Dublin (F) (2008)  

Product Number: 004-007-0508

Usually when I run across a briar the style of which calls to mind the word "floral", there's some manner of fine-edged, concave taper towards the rim, or more conspicuously, a rim carved in way that clearly emulates flower petals. Here Tsuge's Ikebana workshop has however produced a robust and decisive-looking shape that nonetheless still is giving me a floral impression, due to a simple, minimalist handling of the rim. It's a matter of the way the birdseye-packed plane folds and drapes along soft, subtly asymmetrical curves - like an exceptionally broad bloom whose delicate petals are gently curling under their own weight.
