I’m Michal and I’m a fountain pen addict and I lacquer pens with urushi lacquer. On this website, on Instagram, on Facebook and my Tamenuri Studio Youtube channel, you fill find tutorials, videos from my urushi workshop, presentation of techniques, tools and materials used in urushi craft.

I am also showing pens lacquered by me and other artists. I review pens but mostly urushi and I focus on this aspect of pen, not usual build, nibs and writing performance.
I am self-taught in this craft, most I know I learned from my own experience, trial and error. A lot of them. But also from Japanese books, and videos on urushi, and from fellow urushi artists.

I make bespoke urushi pens to order, too, so please contact me If you are interested. It can be an ebonite pen I provide (I cooperate with several hight quality pen-makers) or you pen, provide the clip is removable and trim is not too elaborate.

Please talk to me on social media:  Instagram,  Facebook ,  Youtube or send me an e-mail: michal @ tamenuri.com
