Azurite in Cherry Valley Forge Pen
This pen is made from a cherry tree that was growing on the grounds of Washington Memorial Chapel at Valley Forge. I have inlayed some green-blue Azurite or Morenci in to a metallic red acrylic that is surrounded by a burl like bit of wood. This pen displays chatoyance or cat’s eye effect in every part of the wood.
Joanna from Chevy Chase purchased some Valley Forge pens from me and said – “Not only was this pen beautiful and beautifully presented, but Marc DROVE IT TO OUR HOME in Maryland. He knew I wanted to get it before the end of my son's school year and surprised us by delivering it to our doorstep. He decided to take a trip to Manassas (he is a history buff) that week so he could drop it off on the way. This is, by far, the best customer service I have ever received. He also left us a few of the Ben Franklin holly bookmarks for the kids. What a guy.”
