Nording is a master of carving: his forte, stylistically transcribing the complex organic templates of nature. Seen here in this Abstract bent Brandy, is the artist's interpretation of, what has to be a pine cone or withered bud of some kind, ideally realized in the Brandy shape. Some of the more practical features include the deep chamber, fortified by a tapering layer of briar. The useful Churchwarden stem also allows for a very smooth smoke. "Abstract", as it may be, or, at least, as Nording convinces himself, this bent Brandy Churchwarden is a piece of art, fulfilling both beauty and functionality.
