Pelikan Maki-e Range

Pelikan Maki-e Fountain Pen Phoenix

Ross Adams |

Maki-e is a Japanese lacquerware technique dating back 1,200 years. It requires the artist to paint intricate, detailed designs with the lacquer using a fine brush and then sprinkling, usually, gold power into it before it hardens. Maki-e translates to 'sprinkled picture'. It is a very time consuming process, where each piece is handmade, so therefore unique. 

The Pelikan Maki-e range are all handmade and each pen is limited to an often very small quantity. They are generally based on the size and shape of an M1000 fountain pen.
