The pipe is heated in the forge, then selectively cooled and hammered down to form unique designs. No two pipes come out alike. I added some forged flowers and leaves and attached everything to a heavy, free-form base. The piece was then tumbled in a deburring machine, cleaned and clear coated with lacquer protective finish. It reminds me of a pewter-like color without the hazard of lead.
Approximate dimensions 16 inches wide and high.
