- Warranty & Return
- Nib Comparison
A new original color has been added to Wancher collection - A unique fountain pen set that combines modern utility and traditional arts: Imari Ware (Imari-yaki) and a Nabeshima-yaki
The Concept behinds IMARI Fountain pen Set
Imari Ware and Nabeshima Ware are both prestigious and well-known traditional porcelain art in Arita, Japan. What is now known as Imari Ware and Nabeshima Ware dates back to the Edo period, when porcelain stone and techniques started being developed in Japan. At that time, they were used for only special purposes such as tributes or gifts, and therefore, only the most excellent and experienced potters could craft them. It is even said that they were never available on general markets. The techniques that were superior at the time of its birth have been handed down to the present, and both Imari Wares and Nabeshima Ware continue to attract people even now.
WANCHER Imari Yaki Fountain Pen
First, let's look closer at Imari Yaki fountain pen.
The most striking feature of the pen must be its eye-catching, beautiful glossy combination of colors: the shimmering tint blue cap - body and sweet vermilion finials. We extracted the signature bright colors of Imari-yaki and incorporated them into the blue resin, then adjusting the color portions in a delicate and careful manner. Such craftsmanship has allowed us to produce a mesmerizing fountain pen that shows a variety of expressions, depending on the angle or amount of light. As light is drawn into and slightly passed through the pen, you can feel vitreous cold luster of Imariyaki porcelain.
Furthermore, equipped with a Japanese-quality 21-karat gold nib, Imari Yaki fountain pen promise a highly luxurious appearance, as well as excellent writing performance and functionality.
Nabeshima-yaki Pen Tray
Matching the Imari Yaki fountain pen, the Nabeshima-yaki pen tray depicts the persimmon-colored chrysanthemum, one of the traditional patterns of Nabeshima porcelain ware.
This pen tray was created at Imari Nabeshima Sehou Pottery House - which values the "harmony with nature" and features “creating of wares with natural textures, without any useless parts” using natural materials and pigments. Glazing baked porcelain with transparent red paints is a unique technique that only Sehyou has in Japan. By making the porcelain absorb the natural pigment, we have successfully portrayed a chrysanthemum pattern of a light and gentle atmosphere attracting people.
The artistic look of the Nabeshima-yaki pen tray compliment and brings out the charm of the fountain pen. The chrysanthemum's pattern also shares the same vermilion shade used on the fountain pen's finials. Therefore, when placing the Imari-yaki fountain pen on the Nabeshima-yaki tray, you can enjoy and imagine the elegant three-dimensionally chrysanthemum's petals embracing the pen.
