It is called "delft's blue" and was inspired by living in Delft, where the famous ceramics is coming from.
The blue in my case is from a very old Pelikan ink that my grandfather bought for me when I was in first grade. It is the only material thing that I still have from him except a "many colors" pencil.
I took this ink bottle with me everywhere iI traveled although we do not use fountain pens anymore at this time and age.
And I decided to use a bit of it in this piece because I wished I could talk to him sometimes.
