[Sold] Sakura – hand-painted fountain pen
Su Wolf (@sutroywolf) is a Japanophile and says it is her favourite destination on earth. She has visited Kyoto in cherry blossom season and hence this pen is a tribute to Sakura, the cherry blossom. The pen’s background is a ravishing pink and her blossoms are in lighter shades from a faint blush to the colour one sees on the inside of a seashell. The stamens have bright garnet filaments with gold anthers. There is also a tiny blossom on the cap’s finial.
Some more background on the process: We created the pink pen blank which Su then painted. Once Su had completed her artwork, we coated it in a layer of clear resin so as to allow the ultimate owner to carry and use this art on a daily basis without it getting scratched or damaged. We also added a grip section in a pale, pale pink colour, then did a final shaping, polishing and buffing. Finally we will tune the nib once the new owner has chosen the nib width they would prefer. The end product is a portable, functional, one-of-a kind work of art.
This particular pen also has a sterling silver cap band and section ring, and a medallion embedded in the cap finial which has our logo in bronze.
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.
