Namiki Aya Fountain Pen - Tokiwa
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.
Tokiwa (Evergreen): a Japanese word for ‘something that will never change.’ This design expresses the evergreen trees on a mountain that flourish without their leaves losing color, even in winter. Dried green lacquer powders are applied with varying intensities to symbolize the landscapes of mountains using gradient coloring. Crushed abalone shells and gold-flat-powders are used in the background to evoke a starry night.
