[Sold] Dragonflies on Emerald painted fountain pen

R8,000

This product is currently out of stock and unavailable.

Yulia Glas loves dragonflies so much she has painted these ones against an emerald-sheen background. Inspired by the dragonflies’ gossamer wings that change colour in the sunlight, she painted the backdrop in a colour-shifting paint that transforms from an emerald to a sapphire as it catches the light. Leaves have been given shape in dots of gold, with minuscule dots of black within the dots of gold!, and there is also a hint of deeper foliage outlined in black. As I sit at my desk in the evening with an overhead light, the green background transforms in to a jewel-like shimmer that dazzles. What a classy pen!

Each of our hand-painted fountain pens is a 1/1 original work of art. No-one else will ever own an identical pen. If you would like to request a custom pen from Yulia, you are welcome to contact us via the contact form on our website.

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

The Jabulani model

SPECIFICATIONS

This is a gently curvaceous model, with a girth of 16 mm (0,6”), narrowing to a 10,7 mm (0,4”) grip section. The relatively large size of the model is to allow the artist sufficient space for their artwork, and the artwork is encased in a layer of clear resin to protect it from getting damaged during day-to-day use. Our logo medallion is embedded in the cap finial which is ever-so-slightly rounded, and the barrel finial is ever-so-slightly conical. The cap is a flush-fit and does not post. The Jabulani model usually comes with a hand-made, cap band and section ring in either Argentium silver or bronze, though this may differ depending on what best suits the artwork. Custom hand-crafted roll stops can be added.
