I have been fascinated by a pipe I recently saw that had ridges and so I decided to experiment with that technique. Ridges are difficult. The ridges on The Elephant tobacco pipe did not come out perfectly but I still satisfied with them.
A lot of different names were suggested for this pipe, probably the most common name has been the snail but someone suggested that it looked like an elephant head, with the stem as the trunk and know that's all I can see. I hope you enjoy.
