Raden Diamond Dust

Worldwide Shipping

Estimated Delivery: November 2020

Handcrafted in Wajima by Master Yamanoshita

Since the Raden/Maki-e is applied by hand, the design is different one by one. Therefore, there will be no second fountain pen exactly similar to yours.

Dream Pen Raden is one of the most longed-for designs in Dream Pen collection. Every single piece of Dream Pen Raden is hand-crafted using Japanese traditional Raden and Maki-e art. While the beauty of Dream Pen Raden can be seen through the sparkling finish created the combination of abalone shells and gold particles. The true value of the fountain pen is set under the many-month making process and the craftsmanship that has been build up through centuries.

Raden (螺鈿 in Japanese), which is also called mother-of-pearl inlay, is one of the techniques in Japanese lacquerware that apply inlays of natural pearl shells to decorate a wooden or ebonite surface. While there are a variety of shells that can be used to make raden, raden on Dream Pen is made from abalone shells collected from the Japanese Sea. Once abalone shells are carefully selected, the qualified ones are flattened into a very thin raden sheet. The pearl sheet is then cut to an exact size to prepare for the applying process. To inlay raden to the surface, it involves underlay, overlay, and polishing steps. However, to finish a Raden Dream Pen, it is not only that. The pre-urushi-lacquering and post-urushi-lacquering are mandatory to achieve a smooth and glossy finish. Every single step of this whole process is crafted with great care and attention to details over a long course of time by highly skilled artisans. Many designs have taken us 1-2 years to finish. It is not just a fountain pen but also a piece of art that carries history, traditional values, and meticulous craftsmanship.

The Dream Pen Raden Diamond Dust design was inspired by the beautiful scenery of the Diamond Dust phenomenon in Hokkaido, Japan during winter when tiny ice crystals in the air are formed and sparkle under the sunlight. To depict that scene, the abalone shell sheet is cut into very tiny pieces and inlaid to the pen body. Thousands of raden pieces are sized and affixed very carefully on the ebonite surface, following by multiple Urushi coating and polishing steps.

The artisan spends many months working on the process to make sure the final art can achieve the right density of raden and a perfect balance of colors sparkled from all raden pieces.

Special Edition - Dream Pen Raden Diamond Dust fountain pen will be signed by Master Yamanoshita with the maki-e technique.

Dream Pen Raden is handcrafted in Wajima by Master Yamanoshita.

With many years of experience as a Maki-e artisan, Master Yamanoshita has created precious artworks not only on fountain pens but also many other luxury lacquerware products.

To Master Yamanoshita, every single maki-e product carries its own story and spirits which can bring luck, prosperity, and peace.
