Default Morta Pipe

I bought a pile of Morta from Mike Shue a few weeks ago, and just put the finishing touches on the second pipe I've made from this material:

Morta pipes are typically on the smaller side, due to the rarity of blocks big enough to make a full-sized pipe. That said, Mike did send me some pretty big pieces, so the next one should be a bit bigger.

Very cool one. That looks like it would be comfortable to hold.
