Apollo Series

Spring 2018

These front loaded ballpoint pens are designed and manufactured to highlight the material qualities of aluminum and brass. The final three aluminum pens have three types of surface finishing: sand-blasted, polished and brushed. 

Machined with 6061 Aluminum and 360 Brass.

Project guidelines were to design and prototype 3 of the same object: one that I keep, one that I give to a friend, and one that I sell and give the proceeds to the Studio for Contemporary CraftThe project explores how "we might create objects that can endure beyond their present to exist across generations."
