Sale price$169.00 USD

3 in stock

Encased within this Japanese glass dip pen is a beautifully blooming rose, towards which a fantastical pillar of blue-white glass extends, enhancing the allure of the rose. Amazingly, all these motifs are also handmade in glass.

Rika, a glass artisan, creates this glass pen with the language of roses in mind. The language of the flowers of the blue rose is "dreams come true" and "achieve the impossible."

The appeal of her work lies not just in its beautiful design and concept. Her pen nibs are incredibly smooth, almost eliminating any dragging sensation. This is one of the reasons why many fans of Japanese glass pens are avid supporters of her creations.

We also want you to know her not only as an artisan but also as a person. Please look at 'The Story of SOURIRE' below and feel her charm.

The Story of SOURIRE

After graduating from an art university, Rika Suga began creating glass artworks in 2004. Her creations, born from a unique sensibility, encapsulate a romantic worldview. Her cheerful and approachable nature adds to her charm in contrast to her focused demeanor during production.

SOURIRE, which means 'smile' in French, captures the essence of Rika Suga's atelier in the heart of Japan in Shinshu Azumino. Surrounded by the Japanese Alps, the atelier offers serene views of Mt. Ariake. Rika draws inspiration from the ever-changing scenes of the mountains, the clarity of the air, and the purity of flowing waters, creating pieces that aim to bring a smile to those who encounter them.

Her craftsmanship is also exceptional, particularly noticeable in the smooth glide of the pen nib. Japanese glass pens are often of high quality, offering a smooth writing experience with minimal drag, but her creations are particularly notable for their exceptional smoothness.
