Van Dieman's Tassie Seasons (Spring)- Native Cornflower
5320 South Shackleford Road
Little Rock AR 72204
Van Dieman’s Native Cornflower from the Tassie Spring series is a medium cornflower blue ink with medium shading. It dries in 30 seconds in a medium nib on Rhodia and has an average flow. Van Dieman’s ink is made in Australia.
The Brunonia Australis, also known as the blue pincushion, is a native Australian herb, creating beautiful clusters of blue flowers in the springtime. This light blue ink is a true cornflower blue, with good shading and a very light sheen, noticeable solely on high quality acid-free papers. This ink is an excellent everyday writer when an understated blue is desirable, and is wonderful for bush work and ink washing, as it was in the artwork for the Tassie Seasons labels.
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.
