EDIT: Fixed Capitalization in Title (See Rule 9) - Bob

Has anyone run into this with a morta pipe? I'm three months into my first pipe made with this material, and recently noticed a couple of shallow cracks on the outside of the bowl and mortise, and one side of the bowl seems to have swollen slightly. Is any of this normal, or am I doing something wrong with this pipe (not that I've seen this happen with any other pipe). Any thoughts are appreciated.

Who made the pipe? Can you snap some pics to upload here?
