Namiki's Exquisite Limited-Edition Bumblebee Yukari Fountain Pen

Namiki's latest masterpiece.

Namiki, the esteemed luxury Japanese pen maker, is set to unveil its latest masterpiece in June: the Limited-Edition Bumblebee Yukari Fountain Pen. This exclusive fountain pen, crafted with meticulous attention to detail, is a testament to Namiki's impeccable craftsmanship and the artistry of the "Kokkokai" Maki-e artisans.

Inspired by the harmonious relationship between flora and fauna in the natural world, the Bumblebee Yukari Fountain Pen captures the essence of mutualism through delicate motifs of bumblebees and blue salvia flowers. Limited to just 300 pieces worldwide, each pen is a true work of art, blending traditional Japanese culture with contemporary design. The central motif of the pen, the bumblebee, symbolises intelligence, individual strength, and the indispensable role of pollination in nature. Complementing this motif is the vibrant blue salvia flower, known for its symbolism of respect, wisdom, and familial love. Together, these elements create a scene of harmony and symbiosis, mirroring the beauty of the natural world.

 

 

 

 

Crafted using a mix of Namiki's artisanal techniques, including Hira Maki-e and Togidashi Maki-e, each pen captures the vivid imagery of bumblebees collecting nectar amidst blue salvias. The intricate design is further enhanced with Raden (mother-of-pearl) and gold powder, creating a mesmerising interplay of light and motion. Encased in an exquisite box adorned with Hakone marquetry, reminiscent of honeycomb patterns, the Limited-Edition Bumblebee Yukari Fountain Pen is priced at SGD2400 each (before GST). With only 300 pieces available worldwide, collectors and enthusiasts alike will have the opportunity to own a truly unique and breathtaking piece of art. For more information, visit Namiki.
