The Japanese cherry pen rest is lacquered using the fuki-urushi (“wiped urushi”) technique, whereby the wood is impregnated with urushi lacquer to highlight the beauty of the grain.
A pen rest that enhances the moments between writing. Designed to hold any pen without the need for precise placement, it blends effortlessly into your desk space with a subtle but assured presence.
Material features :
The simple matte lacquer complements any desk space and pairs well with our Japanese cherry and aluminium nib holders. Enjoy your own combination.
Fuki-urushi is a traditional technique that is also widely used in historic architecture. Our pen rest and nib holder are ink-dyed before being lacquered to highlight both the beauty of the woodgrain and the lacquer itself.
Use and care :
The presence of glossy surface speckles are due to a build-up of urushi lacquer in the wood fibres and not to be considered a fault. Imperfections are part of the charm of natural wood and we hope you’ll enjoy the uniqueness.
To prevent distortion and discolouration, avoid soaking in water, sudden temperature changes, extreme heat or prolonged exposure to direct sunlight.
Due to the nature of the material and treatment, grain and colour will vary between pieces.
