Maki-e Autumn Flowers

For this unusual Maki-e motif, the background was decorated in a generous grid pattern by using semi-transparent red and black lacquer stripes. One of the techniques used here is called “Kakiwari“, and only very skilful artists can realize it: A tiny line or gap is left between different drawings which creates a three dimensional effect. The bell flower was added into this elegant composition by using blue mother of pearl particles. There’s a hushed quality about this painting that speaks of golden summer days and a touch of melancholy as autumn comes.

The result is a masterpiece that combines German craftsmanship, based on over 175 years of tradition & technology, with superior Japanese Maki-e painting techniques. This fountain pen was painted using the Kaga-Togidashi-Taka-Maki-e technique. Each fountain pen is individually numbered and signed by the artist. This series is limited to only 88 pieces worldwide. Every model is equipped with an 18 carat, two-tone gold nib and is encased in a traditional Japanese pen box made of Paulownia wood.
