This donation merited it's own thread.

The IAP Collection

Gratefully Welcomes Pen #34

"Eagle Feather's"

Donated by: OKLAHOMAN

Blank by: "Eagle"

Sterling Silver Components by: "MRedburn"

Turning by: "OKLAHOMAN"

I'll let Roy fill in any background when he has a chance, but for now, he did relate this:

Here is the story:

This pen is a tribute to one of the best blank makers to ever touch a piece of wood. His name was William Presavage better know as Eagle. Eagle was a craftsman in the greatest sense of the word craftsman, harking back to the days when they made their product not with a CNC, Laser, $1,000 table saw, $500.00 drill press, but with mostly hand tools and a table top table saw that was at most $50.00 used.

This blank was a series of blanks he made which he called "Feathers" . Eagle often said you don't need an exotic wood to make an exotic pen and most of his blanks were made from very inexpensive wood like the walnut this one is made from. I was fortunate enough to have called Eagle friend. I acquired his blanks over the years and this is the second blank I have turned since he passed.

I asked Mike Redburn, another artist this pen pays tribute to, to send me a solid Sterling Silver component set for this pen and I think he out did himself. I take very little credit for this pen as all I did was turn it.

This pen is a donation by OKLAHOMAN in memory "Eagle."

OKLAHOMAN was contacted as one of the Initial IAP Collection contributors. This is a direct addition into the Core Collection as a non-contest donation.

On behalf of IAP... Thank you Roy, Mike, and... Eagle! Your artistry will be appreciated by many who never knew you.

Beautiful pen but isn't that the wave series? Always thought feathers was different.
