[Sold] Hummingbirds on Gold Leaf fountain pen

R6,000

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.

Nib:

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