The True Maki-e
Maki-e is regarded as one of the highest-grade Urushi techniques which adds more artistic decorations to Urushi lacquerware by sprinkling gold and/or silver powder. The contrast between the warm moist skin touch of the urushi lacquer and the cold feeling of gold and silver creates a marvelous harmony of the maki-e.
With Maki-e, the body of a fountain pen becomes a beautiful picture with three-dimensional impression. Please enjoy the look of your fountain pen as it is beautiful from any angle.
