I’m often asked if I play in a band. I wish my persona put off an artist vibe, but people just see a grown man with hair past his shoulders and think what they will. While I don’t play in a band, there is beautiful music to be made with wood, stone, paint, metal and glass. I’d like to think my handmade and one-of -a-kind works make me a rockstar in my own way. Own a piece of my art and I know you’ll become a big fan as well. Learn more about me and the Artisan Jack Brand.

This sleek Summit style pen offers a classic look and twisting function. The center ring sits on a tenon giving the top and bottom two different widths and a pretty style. Take the “Cross” type refill. This pen has purple / dark purple throughout. It is a VERY dark pen though, but radiates nice purples from the edges.
Sometimes called Amaranth, this colorful Latin American hardwood is tremendously popular for furniture and other designs that call for a unique splash of color. In addition to its coloration, Purpleheart has excellent strength properties, and can be used in applications where strength is important—a wood for both form and function. Freshly cut heartwood is a dull grayish/purplish brown. Upon exposure the wood becomes a deeper eggplant purple. With further age and exposure to UV light, the wood becomes a dark brown with a hint of purple with a mature, beautifully aged look.
