I thought I’d share a few pictures (and the story behind them) of our Turtle Bay series of pens. It might just be me, but I love this series! Originally this idea arose out of a custom order where we were asked to create something that spoke of sunshine, beach sand, and ocean blues and greens. The client loves Hawaii and he tends to spend a good amount of time there during the year, so it made sense to get some inspiration from the islands.
There’s just something about the marriage of resins and woods, particularly when you are trying to mimic nature. Here I’ve mixed some special iridescent colors and used a few different woods to evoke the beach, the sea, and the sunshine.
