Cloud Wisps & Olive Wood fountain pen

R4,950

The delicate wisps of lacy cloud provide a stark contrast to the burnt black edges of the wild olive wood. Raw, elemental, yet fragile, it speaks of earth, wind and yup, you got it: fire. This olive wood is from a (dead) tree that, judging by its age rings, was very old and has been through extremes of weather and fire. The wood has a deep, intricate colour and the texture of the grain can just be discerned beneath the resin. It feels rich, warm, organic.

Although this particular pen has been sold, we would be happy to make another one for you, which would of course be unique. We would send you photos of the pen to ensure you are happy with it prior to shipping it.
