Aries hand-crafted, hand-painted fountain pen


Aries is part of the series of Zodiac Signs fountain pens by Hanna Farmer.

This fountain pen was made by us at Stanford Pen Studio, then painted and zendoodled by Hanna. She paints directly on to the pen, which we then coat in a clear resin to protect her artwork. Once the resin has cured we give the fountain its final shape, including making the section material that holds the nib, polish the pen, and buff it. Although we make use of workshop equipment, the number of hours of handwork that goes into each pen (not to mention the hours Hanna puts into her meticulous artwork) is why we say that each pen is hand-crafted. We also make the bronze cap band and bronze section ring, and the logo medallion in the cap finial is made by a talented artisan in Pakistan. The nib is made in Germany, and we give each nib a basic tuning

Each of our hand-painted fountain pens is a 1/1 original work of art, and no-one else will ever own an identical fountain pen. If you find yourself feeling disappointed that your Zodiac sign pen has already been sold, please make contact via the form on our contact page and we will ask Hanna if she would create a Zodiac pen specifically for you.


Available in Jowo #6 in polished steel. Please select Fine, Medium or Broad at the check-out.

The Jabulani model


This is a gently curvaceous model, with a relatively wide girth of 16 mm (0,6″) narrowing to a 10,5 mm (0,4″)  grip section. It has our logo on the finial, and the finial is ever-so-slightly rounded, rather than dead flat, which adds to the pen’s elegance.
