New Pipes: Ser Jacopo: Spongia Bent Billiard (R2)  

Product Number: 002-171-1895

"Spongia", according to Google Translator, is Italian for "spongia", which isn't terribly helpful. As it turns out, you have to go back a bit farther to get the real meaning - it's Latin for "sponge". Given that the late Giancarlo Guidi saw fit to dedicate an entire, special line to often oddball shapes (the "La Pipaccia") based off of pipes he saw being smoked by mariners and fishermen in the port of Pesaro, it isn't so surprising that he would also name a deeply-rusticated, warmed-over tan finish for its close resemblance to the humble, notably porous sea creature. Suffice to say, the Spongia provides plenty of stimulating texture in hand, and all the better when combined with such a big, broad-bowled design as this.
