Hubby and I went to the 9th Annual Easton Art Affair this past weekend. While it is a very small arts fair, it is a good one. All of the artists are very talented, and the pieces are usually interesting and beautiful.
This year, Mestari Designs, owned by artisan Stan Cook and his wife, was in attendance. Originally knows as Long Hollow Pens, the name was changed in 2008 to reflect the other items produced by the company. Mestari uses every type of wood imaginable for pens, sketching pencils, and other gorgeous items including platters and bowls. Some of the pens available include pens crafted out of ancient wood from Scotland, antique wood from Ohio and other states, and olive wood from Bethlehem. I was truly impressed with the quality of the pens.
Based in Letart, WV, Mestari Designs offers some unique and beautiful items. I highly recommend taking a look at their web site, and checking to see if they will be at an art fair near you! You can contact them for more information here.
