Minoru Nagata’s Morta Hotei 2014

(Reverse Calabash)

Mr Nagata’s long time fans will greet this shape like an old friend.

The deep cup bowl is smooth and precisely designed and cut in a handsome symmetrical shape. The thick bamboo shank is clean and provides a second chamber offering a lovely cool smoke. The stem has an attractive white swirl and attached to the shank with a secure ebonite band.

Amazing work !
