IMP Meerschaum: Carved
+About IMP Meerschaum
Hand carved in Turkey from solid block meerschaum, IMP Meerschaum is a small, artisanal workshop that utilises the finest materials available, including high-grade, German acrylic for the stems, which are fitted with Delrin tenons and sleeved in the shank for a push tenon fit. Focusing more on shape chart classics — though often with quite ornate finishes — each is shaped and carved by a master artisan, then baked to dry completely before receiving a bath of melted beeswax — a process that aids the colouring process over time and use. For those who prefer immediate colour, IMP uses a variety of stains for some of their bowls, along with rusticated, latticework or smooth finishes and silver accents.
