[Sold] Call of Gulls hand-painted fountain pen


Call of Gulls is the third in her Seascape Series, by highly regarded South African artist, Paula Louw. Paula moved a few years ago to live near the sea and her love of the seashore, as well as her painterly way of capturing a scene, are evident in this pen. In this cameo the gulls seems to be playing in the waves, seeing how close they can get to being splashed without being swamped, reverse thrusting out of the way at the very last second.This fountain pen has a grey grip section, whereas the other recent pen in the series, Spray of Gulls, has a turquoise section.

This pen was made by us at Stanford Pen Studio, painted by Paula then coated in a clear resin by ourselves and given its final shape, polished, and buffed. We have added grey grip section to match the underside of the gulls’ wings, as well as a bronze section ring, bronze cap band and our logo medallion embedded in the cap finial.

One thing we ought to emphasise is that each of our hand-painted fountain pens is a 1/1 original work of art. No-one else will ever own an identical pen. The artist paints directly on to the pen, which takes an exceptional level of talent and skill … not to mention time!


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.
