[Sold] Hummingbirds on Gold Leaf fountain pen


This product is currently out of stock and unavailable.

Please join us in welcoming new artist, Yulia Glas. She is originally from Ukraine and has been living in South Africa for many years, having moved to a neighbouring town (Hermanus) a few years ago. Yulia runs a gallery (@sa.yliaglas) and is known for creating eye-catching artworks in a range of media, from acrylic paints to resin to painted pottery to mixed media. Her first pen is a delight: she has painted two delicate hummingbirds against a layer of (imitation) gold leaf. She says she nearly blinded herself while painting as the gold leaf reflected so much light while she was working. On this pen she has used chameleon paints which shimmer and change colour depending on the angle of the light. Lana le Roux created a custom lilac-coloured resin for the section material which complements the flowers perfectly.

One thing we should 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.


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 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.
