Taccia just introduced us with the second Maki-e fountain pen with a special technique for the urushi-painting. 

Presented in a new collection that bears the name Shadow Picture, the body of the fountain pens are drawn with white urushi painting while the designes are made in black, giving it the looks of a shadow. 

Light shades of urushi fountain pens are pretty rare, and the designs Taccia brought, pretty unique:

  • Peony and Butterfly
  • Dragonfly and Iris
  • Crow and Sun

A combination used traditionally in Japan, the Dragonfly on this fountain pen represents a lucky insect that only moves forward, it just brave and its indomitable spirit was preferred by the Samurai. The iris is drawn with a Hira Maki-e technique, with a gold center, just like the eye and the striped pattern of the Dragonfly, while the other design is drawn in Taka Maki-e techniques.

A limited edition of only 50 pieces per each design, Taccia Maki-e Shadow Picture is now available for preorders, with deliveries starting by the middle of August.
