In today’s world, where the average depth and concentricity of blasts have reached levels that would have been considered miraculous a decade ago, Walt invests the same effort and blasting know-how to create an effect that is not only ground-breaking, but a full 180 against the prevailing travel. This shape favorably caught my attention in the tray about 20 minutes ago, really had me sit up @ one minute out of said tray, and now I want to own it. The Tulip shape is a rarity in and of itself, rarer still is one with cool, subtly menacing hints of the carnivorous pitcher plant. An arc to the shank and bit is a given, but why start with a concave from a low base? Aside from the fact that it suits the bowl in an intriguing fashion, the view of the workings of the inner rim, from the smoker’s perspective, is flat out amazing.--R. ‘Bear’ Graves
