The Species:
The term mallee refers to a species’ general growth form (known as a “habit” in biology). Usually smaller and shorter than trees, mallees grow multiple smaller-diameter stems from a common root system. Brown Mallee doesn’t refer to a specific tree of the same name, but rather describes burl pieces from various Eucalyptus species where the wood itself is brown in color. These burls are extremely beautiful and prized for small wood turnings like pens.

The Process:
The hand selected materials for this item were first cut and drilled, then turned on a lathe by me, Jack. Sanding is completed through several grits until the piece is smooth to the touch. Next, up to 10 finish coats of cyanoacrolate (”CA” Superglue) are applied by hand, one at a time. The finish is buffed with a series of micromesh pads, then shined with polishing compound until the surface has a glass-like appearance. A final rub on the buffing wheel adds depth and final clarity.

This method, the most difficult and intensive technique, provides your purchase with the most durable exterior possible, and a beautifully reflective surface that resists the elements and will last for many years.

Casting:
Artist Jonathan Blair created the block I turned into a pen.
