It is a busy week at Arizona Silhouette !
Our 7th Anniversary is coming up in August (stayed tuned for news), and we’ve been getting ready for the 28th annual Washington DC Fountain Pen Supershow. I will be a presenter at the DC Pen show, giving a seminar showing the equipment, tools, blanks and kits need to make a pen. In addition, I will be unveiling two new limited edition pens that were made from wood that was grown from seeds taken to the moon on Apollo XIV.
The lower barrel of the fountain pen is comprised from a piece of the Sycamore tree saved by astronaut Scott Phillips, and stabilized by the artisan. The upper barrel is a photo of the Apollo 14 astronauts whose mission to the moon and back lasted seven days, with two of those days spent on the lunar surface. Only 11 fountain pens were made.
The ballpoint pen is the moonscape laser inlay kit with each end of the inlay replaced with slices of Sycamore “Moon Tree” wood. Moonscape is a limited edition series of 15 ballpoint pens. Let me know what you think in the comments below.
Hope to see you at the Pen Show this weekend. It is held at the Marriott Fairview Park in Falls Church, Va.
