Double-Edged Flower

From the garden, to the page, to the touchscreen, Merrie Buchsbaum's dual-sided, floral pen and stylus will keep you rooted in nature and ready to adapt. Handmade in Connecticut, her vibrant pen-stylus is infused with botanicals hand-picked directly from the artist's garden.

To make the lavender and compost pens, she grinds dried petals, seeds, and stems, or leaves and twigs, and then combines these organic elements with resin. The resulting tools posses natural tints and one-of-a-kind earthy textures, making each one a functional art piece.

Just like your finger, the stylus end works with any touchscreen and keeps surfaces free of smudges and sticky fingers. This screen-friendly tip also allows you to play, draw, and text without having to remove your gloves on brisk days. Whether you're using the ballpoint to put ink to the page or the stylus to navigate your phone or tablet with precision, this stunning specimen is just the thing to inspire any wordsmith or tech maven to spring into action.

Merrie Buchsbaum has been a polymer artist for over 25 years. She is a self-taught artist and has a background in ceramics, photography and art history. Merrie is well known for her sense of color and patterns. More recently Merrie began incorporating natural ingredients into the polymer just like other cultures blended organic matter into clay. As a result Merrie is able to achieve unique colors and textures from nature. Merrie’s work has been widely published in major newspapers, magazines and seen on CBS as well as Fox news. In 2014 the Made in America movie was released nation wide. Merrie was chosen as one of four leading businesses to tell the story about Made in America.
