New Material for a New Year

I’ve long been an admirer of the fabulous pen blanks poured by artist Jonathon Brooks. He has a unique way of mixing colors for dramatic effect that really makes his work stand out. After commissioning him to create some special blanks for a customer in a hard to find coral color, I realized he was the one who could make some material I’ve been wanting for a long time. I asked him to create an alumilite blank that would look like a winter forest at nighttime, with the moonlight glinting off the snow and the silvery, ice-coated tree limbs. We ended up with two different variations, one light, one dark — both a silvery taupe with hints of ice blue and tawny gold shimmering in a pearlescent mist. The lighter version is called Moonlit Forest, and the darker is Midnight Forest. I immediately made a pair of Master Scriveners with them as soon as they arrived. Both went to family members as Christmas Holiday gifts. 🙂
