Pyrography on Gourd (not calabash)
Topic: Pipe 6: NOV06 -NFS

I mentioned the influence of my pyrographic experience on Pipe 6: Here is an example of my previous work:

Its called "Find the River," and is in a private collection. The gourd is filled with Barley.

King of My Castle
Topic: Pipe 6: NOV06 -NFS

Don't ask how Pipe 6 is finished before Pipe 5. You don't have too.

Pipe six is mine; it is a prototype of my proposed castle pipe 5.

 I am not blogging much about it save to tell you that the rustication is my process and is supposed to give a blockish texture as this is the tower of a castle. The crosses in Medieval times were actually cutouts in the castles curtain and were used  to shoot arrows through. The rustication process is, as far as I know, unique to me. More specifically the finish is not a stain but in fact pyrography. Well pyrography is too good a word. It is burnt briar and Carnuba wax. I call the overall finsish Castlerock, not to be confused with the tobacco. Thanks for checking out Pipe 6.
