Namiki Aya Fountain Pen - Akatsuki
Pilot is thrilled to announce the newest collection of fountain pens from Namiki, the Aya Collection. The Aya Collection will be a regularly featured maki-e item under Namiki from the highly revered Kokkai group. The barrel artwork was designed using traditional maki-e urushi lacquer work and finished with a sprinkling of gold and silver dust using the togidashi polishing technique. Each pen features different colored urushi lacquer to create the rich hues of nature.
Akatsuki (Daybreak): the moment when light first appears in the morning. This Japanese word is also used for a eureka moment or realization achievement. The body of the Akatsuki is a deep, burnished red. Dried red lacquered powders are applied with different intensities, and gold powders and gold-round powders are used in the background before the body is coated in urushi lacquer and burnished and polished to a shine.
