Take the pen!*
September 10, 2008
See this? This is a refillable bullet pen. It is made of recycled Corian. And it is handmade by my friend Jill‘s dad. I am (nearly) speechless over this work of beauty, lathed by a Washington artisan out of the garbage dump diva that is Corian.
Ted, we’ve never met, but you have won me over with this pen (and the free veterinary advice re: my needle-noshing Persian). I hope you feel the Living Small love way over there on the Eastside.
Where are the other recycling craftspeople? I know, I know; they are out there. Junk Jewelry Lady is one of my specials. But where are the folks creating tools (like pens) out of second-use materials? Any blogs you’ve found?
