Feels Like Summer – hand-painted fountain pen

R4,000

Su (@sutroywolf) paints happy pens and this vivid orange, turquoise, teal and yellow floral pen is her way of sharing some of our southern hemisphere summer with those in colder climes. Su loves fabrics and design and art and is continually experimenting and taking courses to grow as an artist. This particular pen was inspired in part by the style characteristic of the Finnish design house, Marimekko, with Su interpreting it in her own inimitable way. She is a maestro with colours and often comes up with combinations that few others would have thought of, yet they always work brilliantly.

We made the pen blank, Su painted it, then we set it in clear resin, pressurised and cured the resin, turned the final shape, polished and buffed the pen and added a Jowo nib.

Nib:

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