So, after 15 years (the first Zed is in October 2004), almost without realizing it, I arrived at the hundredth Zed. For this goal I did not work on a particular pipe, something that I kept in the drawer for the occasion, but with a simple design that Stefania did last year. Often, before creating a drawing of her, I let the project lie within me. When I feel the desire to try to make it happen, I get to work. So it was for this pipe. After finishing it, I showed Stefania that at that point she asked me for a ring with a strong presence. I thought of various materials for its realization, in the end I opted for my “usual” boxwood ;).
