AP Limited Editions “The Apprentice” Urushi Ishiji Black Fountain Pen
The Ishiji technique of Urushi Lacquer Art involves several steps of painting Urushi in fine layers and sprinkling dried Urushi powder. After each layer dries up, Urushi is painted again and this process is repeated several times. When the desired texture is achieved, the surface is polished using charcoal and Suri-Urushiis painted to complete the texture.
AP Limited Editions presents The Mosaics, a contemporary rendition of an ancient form of surface decoration found across the world. Mosaic Art evolved from the earliest periods of Greek and Roman history to create a fascinating and diverse style of figurative, floral, geometric and abstract patterns.
