New Pipes: Alex Florov: Smooth Elephants Foot with Horn "Sphinx"  

Product Number: 002-354-0169

Bo Nordh was a legend, yet some of his shapes haven't been explored anywhere near as much as others. The Sphinx in particular comes to mind. Here Alex Florov tries his hand at one (not for the first time, granted), and quite frankly I'm very glad that he did. This briar is beautiful, and I have to say it, even more Sphinx than the original Sphinx - it's the Sphinx as I imagine Bo Nordh might have made it were he alive today, and had had these extra years to continue its refinement. The greater degree of curve applied to the flanks' edges, the more peaked and prominent forward face, the gentle upward arc of the horn shank, the more delicate transition and the cresting little flare at the front of the rim; a lot has changed, yet the essence of the shape remains the same. It's expression is just all the more beautiful.

- Eric N. Squires
