The different hues and shades of light have inspired artistic impression for generations. Urushi Maki-e Artist ? Wataru Kurotobi has taken unusually abstract views of such spectacles and has drawn inspiration from his studies of the life-giving sunlight. This variation of colour, light and shade has been captured by his artwork for this special Limited edition series prepared by Sailor, the You-Kou fountain pen. The artist has used the traditional Urushi decoration technique known as Saya-Nuri or Kawari ?Nuri. This technique is said to have its origins back in the fief system of the Edo period 1615-1868 when local craftsmen used a range of techniques to decorate the sword scabbards and make them noticeably different. With the abolition of the wearing of swords in public in 1876 this Urushi technique was applied to other small items. For this pen, firstly several base coats of Yellow Urushi laquer are applied at the Naka nuri stage and polished before the addition of selected gold leaf. Then more viscous yellow Urushi is applied and the wave patterns formed at the Uwa nuri stage. The King of Pens in Ebonite with Gold accents and Gold solid 21K gold nib has been specially chosen for this artistic masterpiece, the edition is limited to 33 pieces.
