Handcrafted wooden pen – Platanus, London, United Kingdom, Gold, Fountain Ink
As a tree Plane, or London Plane, is unusual. Not especially common, but where it grows, it reaches incredible sizes. Often found in parks and estates as specimen trees you’d know them immediately by their bark.
The Plane timber is unusual too. Fresh sawn it has an amazing colouration of pinks and peaches. As it dries it calms down and becomes more milky brown with a hint of pink but it displays an extraordinary laced grain pattern. Within the grain, you often see little hooks and pip like patterns too as the trees often suffer from epicormic growth or burrs. No one can accuse Plane of being plain!
