[Sold] The Gatekeeper – steampunk art fountain pen
According to ancient Egyptian legend, owls were believed to be the gatekeepers to the underworld, protecting the souls of those who strayed into this land accidentally. They were viewed as symbolic of courage and supernatural wisdom. In Hanna’s (@hanna_designs_art) steampunk version, the owl wears a big brass studded monocle connected to cogs in place of a pocketwatch; s/he is perched on a steam-pipe which is part of a convoluted steam-driven electrical contraption and overlooks an even more complex machine with its series of pipes, valves, gears, light bulbs, propellors, clocks, rivets and cogs.
Hanna drew her artwork 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.
This fountain pen 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.
