This split rat rig is a special offering from RVA glassblower Akm. A full body rat was first hand blown, then wet sawed in half, creating the ability to make two pieces. The left side of the rig features a regular rat, while the right side is split open showcasing the inside of the body including a skull with opal eyes. With meticulous detail, Akm was able to draw on organs and really bring this pipe to life.
Photographs marked with letter 'Rx' are of the 'Right-Half' Rat.
