New Pipes: Maigurs Knets: Smooth Aussie Turtle (342)  

Product Number: 002-519-0044

We've seen Maigurs's Turtle, and his Aussie, and in this very update his "Small Turtle"... and now we appear to have before us a Small Aussie Turtle. Arguably, one might also call this shape a "Small Aussie Double-Turtle", as there's clearly an echo going on between the design of the bowl and shank-end. As we've come to expect from Maigurs, no matter how lush a shape becomes, or however recently he's introduced it, the execution is just beautiful. But then Maigurs isn't one to go off and produce a pipe-shape on the fly, after all. He puts a lot work into concept and modeling mock-ups of his designs before they even reach the briar-meets-bandsaw phase. This process recalls to me one of his major influences, the great Alphonse Mucha, who spent years and years developing his style and technique in obscurity, before exploding onto the Parisian scene on account of a chance commission of a poster for a play starring Sarah Bernhardt.
