Notes
This briar had a few imperfections and one small root inclusion visible in the bottom three pictures (looks kinda like somebody stamped an "O" on the side of the bowl). Fortunately this pipe is rather thick in this area, and I probably could have even worked this inclusion out, except that it would have messed up the design I was going for. So I opted to do a light sandblast. This actually worked well, I think. I started seeing this pipe as a barnacle, and adopted that name for this one.
