Gold Bic Pen Cap
solid gold, cast from the cap of a Bic pen
'By replacing the cap of a standard Bic pen with a cast gold replica, this ubiquitous, generic writing implement is aligned with aspirations of luxury and trophies of academic and corporate achievement. It transforms the Bic pen it covers from a disposable tool into a hybrid carrier of value its owner might not want to misplace.'
