[Sold] Koi Doodle – original art fountain pen


We are delighted to present a new artist in the Stanford Pen Studio ‘family’: Hanlie Farmer. (@hanna_designs_art). Hanlie (short for Hanna) has loved drawing since she was little and doodles have been her favourite art form. She studied graphic design which had a strong influence on her style: it became more structured while retaining its whimsical element. Hanlie describes her art as Zendoodling: drawing doodled patterns that create a recognisable object or just an interesting abstract picture.

We invited Hanlie to try her hand at Zendoodling on one of our fountain pens and this is the result. We are blown away by her ability to work at such a small scale. She used a fine pen that is 0,12 mm thick (0,004 inches!!). She then added tiny touches of watercolour that accentuate some of the features and many hours later, she presented us with a pen. Wow!!!

The artwork was drawn on to one of our fountain pen blanks that we specifically designed for the purpose. Once the artwork was complete we coated it in an outer layer of clear resin which allows the owner to carry and use this art on a daily basis without it getting scratched or damaged. A portable, functional, one-of-one original.

The pen has a sterling silver cap band and section ring, both of which are made by a local jeweller. It has a slightly-darker-than-duck-egg-grey section and is supplied with an engraved stainless steel Jowo nib.


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.
