Default Inspired by the IAP Traveling Collection

Was smitten by the blue abalone pen in the National Collection (thanks, Mark James).

Sweet Pen! Hearing of viewers being inspired by others artistry is a wonderful compliment.

The actual pen you were admiring was not one of the pens in the IAP Collection, but in my case of personal pens - that one being one of Ron Robbins ( This is a minor detail, as you would not have seen it if not for me being there to display the IAP Collection.

Beautiful job.
Check out the
IAP Collection

The IAP Collection is a permanent collection of pens
that has been established from the
IAP Membership explicitly for the purpose of
public display, preservation and inspiration.

Excellent pen, Tom.

I'm disappointed that I wasn't able to be there for the viewing. Granddaughters overrule pen turners.
