Ardor: Giove Fantasy Bent Pot
Product Number: 002-004-1851
Never before have I seen Ardor craft a bent Pot shape like this, and I dare say it might a long time before I do again. The pipe does exhibit the characteristic "Fantasy" flourishes: low-slung, baring the distinctively shaped acrylic mount, with a length that's elongated but all around solidly compact. This pipe's shape, however, veers far more toward the muscular cut seen in German pipes, with the quintessential underlying Danish smoothness - not the sharply profiled square bowl more in line with Ardor's more common seen Pot shapes.
The grain is also something to behold: perfectly oriented, heavy, luminous drapes of flame grain, the base seemingly dipped in a pool of birdseye. Finished in a conservatively classic walnut stain, the sterling silver mounted acrylic stem compliments the palette well, appearing as crystallized honeycomb, warming the coolly subdued umber.
