This pen rest is crafted from solid Japanese cherry wood and lacquered using the fuki-urushi technique, involving wiping urushi lacquer with a cloth after the application. This process of wiping allows the lacquer to be absorbed deep into the grains of the wood and highlights the natural beauty of the grains more so than other urushi methods. The shape of the pen rest was designed to hold any pen without the need for direct placement.
  • Material: Cherry wood with urushi lacquer
  • Dimensions: 0.8 in / 2 cm (H); 2.6 in / 6.5 cm 
  • As each item is handcrafted, please expect slight variations in the specification or feel.
