In highly figured Norway maple burl with black enamel finish.
The maple was submerged in orange dye and processed for 24 hours in a vacuum chamber. This piece was then heated to harden and stabilize the dye before turning on a vintage wood lathe.
This pen is part of a Norway maple that fell during a snowstorm at my forested home in Portland, Oregon. A burl is a rounded knotty, irregular growth that when polished has elegant decorative detail. The black decorative lines are called spalting.
Use Cross style ballpoint refills.
