From Death Comes Beauty

From Death Comes Beauty

This tube was originally "Harvest of the Worm" which was the first piece that Worm and I had made and it was somehow broken after the Vegas show. Despite the fact that this took a serious impact, we managed to reconstruct what was left into this tube and personally I find it as attractive as the original piece. The tube features bowl skirt and a showerhead perc to an upline gadget. It has a 110mm chamber and the total height is 24 inches. Thanks for looking!
