The Smithsonian is a retractable rollerball featuring a lacquer-coated steel barrel in a range of designs inspired by the Smithsonian, the world's largest museum.
There is a knurled metal twist-action button at the end, to extend the tip, and a slotted metal pocket clip. It's supplied in a themed cylinder which doubles as a pen stand as well as a protective case.
Woodland Hummingbird and Flowers is a limited edition celebrating the indigenous peoples of America. The design is by Dr Shirley Brauker, whose 'carved cut-out' approach has resulted in her design being acid-etched onto the barrel and then plated in stone-washed copper. The individual serial number is inscribed on the top ring.
Dr Brauker is a lifelong artist. She began working with drawing and painting and then moved into clay and bronze work. She uses personal experiences and her Little River Band of Ottawa culture to draw from and then carves stories into pots. Her "carved cut-out" approach, inspired by a dream, has become her trademark. She strives to combine the artwork and legends of the past with contemporary materials of the present, keeping story-telling traditions alive. Dr Brauker's Moon Bear Pottery is dedicated to the preservation of Woodland art. Brauker attended Central Michigan University where she earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts, a Master of Arts, and a PhD. She also earned an Associate's Degree from Mid-Michigan Community College. She also attended the Institute of American Indian Arts in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Dr Brauker's "carved cut-out" approach and mission to preserve Woodland art inspired Retro 51 Tornado's Woodland Hummingbird and Flowers.
