Italian Estates: Il Duca Sandblasted Morta Bent Bulldog (B)
Product Number: 004-006-31876
Max Rimensi of Il Duca has certainly fashioned his fair share of morta pipes, and this Bulldog design is one of his most often rendered. Characterized by an easy, curling disposition, the squat bowl rises naturally and seamlessly from out of the bulbous underside. It's heavily imbued with the carver's organic style, mimicking the smooth lines and sinuousness of a serpent. The sandblasted morta provides a crisp and concise texture, unique to the dense medium, and makes for a wonderful color palette pairing ebony with a warm cumberland stem, the variegated nature of the cumberland matching well with the visual texture of the morta.-Truett Smith
