Shell Inlay Series


This is a spin off of my popular Series 4 Balustre series inspired by the rich traditional balusters of Filipino ancestral homes – from the seating and aparadors (clothing cabinet) to ventanillas that allow air to flow in and out of the homes Filipinos grew up in, to decorative details in staircases.  Balustre pays tribute to the craftsmanship of skilled karpenteros (carpenters) in hand-carving the fine details of the balusters.  This limited edition series uses rare Kamagong wood and my original shell inlay.  All the pens turned in this series have the same signature Balustre detail.
