Heirlooms feed your soul
The LS 10 Inochi (Life) was launched in 2004. It was inspired by the Oak tree, a symbol of strength, the green leaves represent dignity, integrity and honor. Its green leaves and golden acorns also represent a new season in the forest, a new beginning in life. Indeed, Inochi in Japanese means Life.
The Inochi is a three dimensional composition. Its background is raised and textured in pastel shades of brown and reflects the bark of the Oak tree. The pen body is decorated with golden acorns and green oak leaves. The consummately executed design shows incredible detail of the high relief acorns and green leaves, down to the minute details of the textured bark. This textured background, to our knowledge is novel for a fountain pen.
The Maki-E artist is Shogetsu Mitani. He is famous for his art on various Japanese objects including tea containers. Some of his creations have been purchased by the Japanese government to be used for ceremonial occasions.
The Maki-E techniques on the Inochi composition are Togidashi, Taka (raised) and the texturing of the pen body.
There is a choice for the canvas of the Inochi. The Parker Duofold Centennial, one of the most celebrated pen models of all time and the new Classic Legend full size fountain pen.
All LS designs carry the Red Seal signature of the creating artist. The Inochi, bears the prestigious Red Seal signature of the artist of Shogetsu Mitani. He also paints the individual limited edition number of the pen on the barrel end.
A certificate of authenticity signed by the artist, Masa Sunami and Andreas Lambrou accompanies each pen.
