Tsuge Ikebana: Ikebana Smooth Liverpool (F)
Product Number: 002-623-4416
Tsuge's Ikebana workshop produces plenty of beautiful freehand designs, as one would expect from a workshop of artisans skilled in the Japanese school of pipe design. They don't neglect the classics either, however; something made beautifully evident here. I'll admit it, when I hear "Liverpool", the first word to come to mind isn't "gorgeous". Simple, classic, straightforward - yes. But gorgeous? Well, this one is gorgeous. Though quite big-bowled, shank and stem have been balanced and tapered just perfectly, and, well, the grain and the rich contrast finish used to highlight it does all the rest. And how.
