Il Duca: Sandblasted Morta Acorn (B)
Product Number: 002-427-0429
Max Rimensi is certainly no stranger to crafting pipes from morta as the material offers many practical benefits, not the least of which is its light weight, though many enjoy the medium for its aesthetic appeal as well. When sandblasted, morta can bring out truly fascinating grain patterns, often yielding tight, neat, and even striations all about the bowl. Such is the case here as some truly magnificent rippling grain covers the bulbous bowl of this Acorn and continues down its proportionally lengthy shank. The jet-black stummel is also an excellent match to the brindled vulcanite saddle stem of swirling mossy green tones.- Jeffery Sitts
