This listing is for a matching pen and pencil gift set in sierra style.
This silky oak timber in this pen and pencil set is spalted. Spalting is a valued wood colouration process caused naturally by fungi. Spalting increases the contrasts of light and dark colours in the timber and makes brown and black lines running through the wood appear. This timber was grown on a beautiful block of land in Grafton owned by my father and fell due to natural causes and lay undisturbed in its bushland habitat enough years for the spalting process to begin. It was then carried on the shoulders of a man in a flannelette shirt, strapped onto the roof of a Toyota Landcruiser, travelled to sunny Queensland where is has been sawn into pens, pencils, letter opener and ice cream scoop blanks.
This wooden pen and pencil set is created by an artisan who hand turns each item on a wood lathe in North Brisbane. Using a meticulous thirteen step sanding process and 10 coats of CA we highlight the simple, innate beauty of the spalted silky oak timber and create an exceptional and durable finish. The natural uniqueness in the woodgrain and timber colour variations, means that each wooden pen and pencil we create is one of a kind.
