This urushi fountain pen is a masterpiece that seamlessly combines two ancient decorative techniques: lacquerware and maki-e. The production process demands meticulous control of temperature and humidity. Each layer of urushi lacquer applied undergoes a minimum 24-hour curing period for full hardening. Only after this can it be delicately sanded, allowing for the application of another layer. This painstaking process is repeated more than five times, resulting in a breathtaking work of art that requires immense patience and unwavering determination to create.
