WOW!

I am constantly astounded over the beauty and artistry of maki-e pieces.  But for me (even if *could* afford them, the urushi finish makes them "look, but don't touch" for me.... :(

ETA: And before I get any guff from ANYONE about being a "fear monger" -- yes, I AM that allergic to urushiol oil, which is the same stuff that is in poison ivy (and poison oak, and poison sumac -- kindly note the word "POISON" in the names). :angry:  And can NOT take the risk (poison ivy goes systemic on me, and the last time I had it I went through THREE bouts of steroids trying to knock it out, and that took about 6 weeks; I had a $400 US water bill for that quarter, since I was doing laundry every day so I wouldn't re-infect myself with my clothes or the sheets and towels. :wacko:  

I would not wish that on my worst enemy -- it's HORRIBLE.

"It's very nice, but frankly, when I signed that list for a P-51, what I had in mind was a fountain pen."

This is a custom order, not an official one.

Pelikan will have another mixed raden released later this year or earlier next year.

It is a truly beautiful pen!  There is such an interesting contrast between the efficient functional design of the pen and the serene beauty of the maki-e scene.  Quite a wonderful piece and you are lucky to have it!

Really very nice! And the fact that the images were imagined, conceived, and then executed as a one-off is truly impressive. Congratulations.

Absolutely gorgeous!

 

Sadly, I am clumsy and sometimes drop pens. So, my rule is to buy pens which are functional, but not beautiful enough to cry over.

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.

      Reminds me of the day my associates and I developed a cure for all mankind's ills and mistakenly wrote it down with invisible ink.

      Was that the end of the Laboratory? Somehow the exactitude created a fully destructive device, as always!
