I'd pitch that pipe as a fire hazard. You don't want to visit the burn clinic. More sipping and less puffing would be good form and might actually improve the flavor for you, once you develop the habit. Thicker bowl walls might also be good, like many classic pot shape pipes and some freehand, just to buy a little insurance against burn-outs, though you still have to keep an eye on the situation.
