Smoking pipe in nerikomi technique
Ceramic smoking pipe from the collection of items in the Japanese technique of nerikomi — a mixture of several types of clay of different colors.
Each device has its own unique pattern, as I mold it by hand. It is a very time-consuming process: I have to prepare clay of several colors, make the pattern, wash the devices to make the pattern clear, etc.
In fact, the value of these pipes is much higher than the price at which I sell them. Because of this, I rarely make such devices. But with time I forget about all the difficulties, find inspiration and such a collection appears.
So take time to buy devices in the style of nerikomi. No one knows when such devices will appear again.
Nets are included.
How to clean. My devices often have complex shapes, so the question may come up — how to clean them? Here’s my advice.
You need a powder for cleaning bongs. If you don’t have one, you can use another cleaning agent, for example, oven cleaner. Dissolve the agent in boiling water. Put the device in the solution. Leave it for a couple of hours. Take it out and rinse very well with water. That’s it. The device is ready for use.
Due to the color rendition of some devices, the color of the product may slightly differ from what is shown in the photographs or displayed on the screen of your device.
