Materials

Bowl Tuscan briar

Stem walnut + methcarylate

Project description

“What would have happened if the culture of pipe-weed had spread between orcs?”
This is the question that lead to the conception of this obscure artefact.

With the Orc Pipe, the artisan has given a verisimilar shape to the means by which the forces of evil of Tolkien’s Middle Earth could have devoted themselves to the cult of smoking.

Completely built by hand, this pipe as black as pitch has a Tuscan-briar bowl and a removable walnut stem with a methacrylate mouthpiece.
The characteristic intaglio, which provides rough and aggressive traits, makes it an object consonant with orcs’ primitive and rude tastes, and gives to the wood the semblance of Mordor lands’ stone.
