German Estates: Jurgen Moritz Smooth Volcano with Bamboo and Ivory (2010)

Product Number: 004-005-3383

Along with the likes of Frank Axmacher and Cornelius Manz, Jurgen Moritz is part of a new wave of remarkable German pipemakers who've cropped up over the last decade. They may not have received as much international attention (yet) as their fellow newcomer artisans from the U.S., or those who've risen from the already established Danish school in the past ten years, but the pipes they've been creating are easily on par in terms of design and quality. Jurgen is one who is particularly keen on keeping his work original and distinctly his own. This Volcano, for example, hints at a Bo Nordh general influence with its softly-rounded plane along the underside and accentuating ridge, but beyond possessing loads of beautiful grain, and simply being a Volcano, it otherwise has nothing in common with Bo Nordh's own Volcanoes - what that underside and ridge resemble is the forward face of the Sphinx, a completely different Nordh shape that's nothing like a Volcano at all. With gently flowing edges, a good bit of cant, and a soft, sweeping swell of the underside, Jurgen's essentially adapted this very un-Volcano-ish element to create a Volcano that's uniquely active, elegant, and organic.
