J. Herbin was an enterprising French sailor of the mid-17th century. While he was in the employ of the Compagnie des Indes Orientales, he made a number of voyages to India, collecting ingredients and formulas for his sealing wax and inks.
Stormy seas are the inspiration for Herbin's 1670 ink, "Stormy Grey." Its color is a deep coal grey (anthracite) with flecks of gold. On his many voyages, Herbin encountered dark and wild oceans. The fine golden flecks in the ink are meant to invoke both strikes of lightening across the water, and its dark and mysterious depths.
