The Challenge:  To create a custom fountain pen for a woman graduating with a Ph.D. in physics who's specialty deals with galactic emissions of plasma jets. The pen had to be feminine, yet relevant to her course of study.  I created a stylized rendering of a pinwheel galaxy orbiting a black hole symbolized by mother of pearl inlay.  Traversing the length of the barrel is the plasma jet which has been ejected from one of the radial arms of the galaxy.  The final piece was done in North American holly, however the concept here is shown in naturally shed elk antler.
