Van Dieman's Tassie Seasons (Spring)- Cloudburst
5320 South Shackleford Road
Little Rock AR 72204
Van Dieman’s Cloudburst from the Tassie Spring series is a dark royal blue ink with low shading. It dries in 20 seconds in a medium nib on Rhodia and has an average flow. Van Dieman’s ink is made in Australia.
The cloudburst is one of Tasmania's significant weather patterns that engulfs the mountainous terrain. The dark, rich blue signifies the darkened clouds that appear out of nowhere on a clear sunny day, which gives the illusion of the darkened and yet somehow bright blue that drenches pockets across the region in short but powerful downpours, seeming like water bursting out of the cloud. These spectacular occurrences usually appear throughout spring, and when it does the color from the cloud can be stunning.
About Tassie Seasons
Tassie Seasons is the fifth series in Van Dieman's expanding collection of Tasmanian Fountain Pen Inks. These sixteen inks encapsulate the changing colors of Tasmania, with four inks dedicated to each season. Tassie Seasons is a mix of dark and light, warm and cool, every-day writing worthy and artistically minded colors, including two shimmer inks.
Tasmania is the only state in Australia with a truly temperate climate. Winter exhibits colorful festivals in the south, generous snowfalls in the central highlands, and foggy days in Launceston from July through to September. Cool and breezy spring days unveil a kaleidoscope of native flowers, vibrantly plumed birds and stunning butterflies. An abundance of local produce arrives in the summer, to be enjoyed with a day at the many beaches, and followed by the ominous summer storm. In Autumn enjoy late seasons figs and pepperberries and marvel at Australia's only native deciduous tree at the turning of the fagus.
