This stunning GoTang Calabash represents a part of the fourth foray into a series of collaborations between Tom Eltang and Kei’Ichi Gotoh. It’s a partnership which began in 2006, when the latter visited the former, and the two co-shaped the base designs for four pipes. With the initial concept and shaping completed, the soon-to-be GoTangs went back and forth between Copenhagen and Tokyo as they were slowly, carefully completed. The GoTang legend appeared again in 2008, and once more in 2011. In accordance with an apparent (roughly) three-year cycle, the GoTang has risen again in 2014: Calabashes all, but each unique in its own right. Yes, that mount and cap are crafted from mammoth ivory, and the totality of fascination contained within this most singular form is unparalleled within my experience.
