Project description

The “Fossil Edition” is the most rare model of the Gimli Pipe, a churchwarden entirely made of bog oak.

The ancient wood out of which the bowl and the stem are made dates back to oak trees lived more than 2800 years ago, fallen and submerged in bogs near rivers. Anaerobic conditions protected oak wood from decay, water and minerals dissolved in it has given to the wood an incredible dark grey color.
The grain of the wood tells the story of the tree. Its spirit revives today within this precious object.

Handmade decorative button made of silver.

The tip of the stem is made of grey methacrylate.
