Nakaya Piccolo Cigar Enjoying The Moon Cat
A black cat painted in Yakou Maki-e technique gazes up contemplatively at the moon, as does a smaller mouse depicted by the cat's side. However this evocative fountain pen represents more than simply a cat, a mouse, and the moon. This pen embodies the sense of appreciation that a passive observer can have for the natural world. The Yakou Maki-e technique adds texture to the critters, bringing them to life.

The artist uses Tame-Sukashi technique to paint the moon in striking reddish orange, ensuring that it will increase in brightness over time. Paw prints on the gripping section and the featured cat are made using the Yakou Maki-e technique whereby the images are painted in black Urushi over an Aka-tamenuri base.
14k nibs are well-suited to customizations including Stub, Cursive Italic, and Left Oblique, as well as the modification for added flex.
