Freehand pipe, carved without any lathe.

Beautiful straight grain of a well dried and seasoned briar from the forest hills surrounding the Mediterranean sea in Barcelona.

Ergonomic form to fit well in your hand. 

Black acrylic stem with a teflon cone, without filter.

High tobacco capacity for large smokes.

On the under side you can see a bit of natural skin.

I sign all pipes with my trade mark brand: a little circle piece of “antalis” (a genus of tusk shell) and Mediterranean red coral inside.

 

This pipe reminds me to …

The northern garnet (morus bassanus) is a seabird and the largest member of the garnet family, Sulidae.

Northern garnets dive vertically into the sea at velocities  of up to 100 km/h and the structure if their bodies is adapted for this practice.

The wings of the northern garnet are long and narrow and are positioned towards the front of the body, allowing efficient use of air currents when flying.

Individuals have a subcutaneous fat layer, dense down and tightly overlapping feathers that help them withstand low temperature.

Some breeding colonies  have been recorded as being located in the same place for hundreds of years.
