[Currently available] Pastel Shards hand-painted fountain pen


It is difficult to capture in photographs the lightness and delicacy of this pen by Kseniia Nel. She has spent many more than 10 000 hours perfecting her craft, as can be seen from this gentle, subtle study of geometric patterns on shards of pastel. We have added a dramatic section in glossy black that gives the pen gravitas and prevents it floating off on a breeze …

Kseniia grew up in Ukraine where youngsters are streamed into a particular career path from very early on. She was seen to have artistic talent and was designated to the Art and Design stream. so from the age of 14 has been practicing art every day … for literally tens of thousands of hours.

This pen includes an engraved nib, our logo medallion in silver, and a silver cap band and silver section ring.

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 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.
