Ardor: Meteora Diplomat
Product Number: 002-004-2644
While the Diplomat is a classic shape, it's rarely produced in modern times, and it's even rarer to see one that was crafted in Italy. This particular offering marks the very first time we've seen Ardor produce the timeless form and they certainly delivered an impressive rendition. The low-slung, forward urging bowl broadens considerably as the bowl tapers to the subtle ridgeline that wraps around the bowl's waistline. The workshop's iconic Meteora finish has created some ornate, complex patterns around the bowl and provides a stimulating texture in hand through seamlessly combining carved panels with rugged rustication. The acrylic stem's mix of swirling black and murky brown tones complements the stummel's vibrant, deep crimson stain exceptionally well and in a more understated manner compared to the more colorful mouthpieces the Roveras often pair pipes with.- Jeffery Sitts
