The Wasp is a member of a group of my shapes that has been maximized for ergonomics. Form following function. The aesthetics are nothing to sneeze at either. And, as is sometimes the case, a seemingly finished piece can be improved. With the present tamper it was a matter of narrowing the lower portion for a superior in small bowled pipes. That required a tweak to the overall shape which resulted in a much more dramatic shape.
And then there is the material Wildfire. It so much reminds me of licks of flame through the haze of smoke.
Wasp in Wildfire will come nestled in a Neil Flancbaum created buckskin leather pouch.
