Sandblasted Morta Cherrywood

Product Number: 002-007-0579

In form this Paolo Becker contrasts a stout fireplug of a bowl and a broad, flaring shank with an ultra-fine, wasp-waisted slip of a transition: something that might seem a bit unusual, if you haven't been following Paolo's work, but, for those who have for any length of time, this shape would vie as one of Becker's most recognizable signatures.

One aspect of this pipe that's a tad out of the norm, is seeing it in morta — normally seen in briar and, more recently, in strawberry wood. This is only the second time we have seen this standby executed in the noble, semi-fossilized bog oak. The almost machine-precise grain pattern of morta lends a different spirit, one I (personally) find more in keeping with this modernist presentation than (say) the wild patterns found in strawberry wood.
