Crossgrain

 

My first attempt at a blowfish, three years ago, convinced me that it is not a shape to be taken lightly. I'm still working up to it, you might say, as this pipe merely incorporates an element of the blowfish that I felt I could make my own — otherwise, it's an egg. One cursed little sandspot popped up in the rim at the very end, by which time I'd gotten attached to the shape as a whole, so rather than risk blowing the composition I knocked the price down a bit. The blasted part is to deepen the impression of relief and make the striations pop out more. Floc is synthetic ivory.

The pipe overall is 5 1/2" long, 2" high, weighs 55g. Handcut vulcanite stem with Delrin tenon.
