Nakaya Portable Writer Sumiko Spider and Web

Nakaya has created Spider and Web fountain pen by using the traditional "Sumiko" (charcoal powder) technique. This pen tells a story, the ending of which is not resolved. Butterfly is not captured except in the art of the urushi. It is a tale of contrasts, predator and prey, light and dark, capture and escape, sinister and inviting.

There are currently no reviews for this product.

Note the differences in surface texture between the black gloss of the web and the flat black background. On the grip section, a craftsman used gold powder as the base then painted a butterfly with urushi lacquer and sprinkled with gold powder and rubbed with black and white urushi. Finally it is polished using the ("togi-dashi") technique. We are told that there is a flower painted under butterfly.
