[Sold] It’s Raining Cats – hand-painted fountain pen


I tried counting how many cats there are on this pen but had to stop after I had got to 50, only to find I had to start again as I had missed some! There are cats floating down under umbrellas, cats base-jumping with balloons attached, a weathervane-cat, a cat playing a harp, a cat playing a cello, cat playing a lute on a balcony, cat in a pot plant, chimney cat, cat wearing tigger-striped pyjamas, and of course, a cat on a fiddle. And then there are kittens ….

We have matched Hanna’s It’s Raining Cats with a Vintage Bugatti-red section material to match the colour of some of the roofs and to add a touch of gravitas to a very buoyant pen!

If you were to buy this pen, may we suggest you attach a lanyard (or an alarm) as it is likely to get picked up and examined by every person who walks by!

This pen was made by us at Stanford Pen Studio, painted and zendoodled by Hanna Farmer, then coated in a clear resin by ourselves and given its final shape, polish, and buffing. It has a bronze section ring, bronze cap band and bronze logo medallion in the finial. One of a kind!


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 relatively wide girth of 16 mm (0,6″) narrowing to a 10,5 mm (0,4″)  grip section. It has our logo on the finial, and the finial is ever-so-slightly rounded, rather than dead flat, which adds to the pen’s elegance.
