Maigurs Knets: Sandblasted Small Turtle (339)
Product Number: 002-519-0043
I suppose the quickest summation of this pipe is that it is the featherweight version of Maigurs Turtle shape, pairing a scaled-down version of the distinctive bowl design to a shorter, lighter shank and stem. Well, it may be lighter and smaller, but it's not an iota less beautifully complex. I was about to say that Maigurs great skill at realizing his Art Nouveau influences really comes shining through in shapes like this, but, really, it comes shining through on all of his Art Nouvea-inspired pieces; we've even seen him pull it off with classic, straightforward Lovats, just by the use of contrast stains, finishing techniques, and unique accent work.
