    A couple of new ones for you to view

    While I have no desire to do casting of pen blanks at the present time, I have a very generous friend named Marla.

    I hope I have done as much justice in my turning of them as she has in her casting of them!


    Both pens are cast with polyester resin. The feathers are from the cape of a Jungle Cock (did that get by the censors), the watch pen is what is known in the art world as Steam Punk. Just google it, don't ask me to explain or describe it.

    It feels great to sell a pen,
    It feels even greater to give one to a friend!

    If your presence doesn't make an impact;
    Your absence won't make a difference!

    Mack, great job as always. I'm a "fan" of the Steampunk Genre, though I'm far from serious about it. That pen would fly out of your booth at a Steampunk venue. Then they would 'mod' it.

    I like 'em both, Mack, although the feather one is my favorite. Ned's right though...the steampunk one should fly off the sales table.

    Very nice Mack, the work of a true artist and craftsman. I'm envious.
