[Currently available] Transformation hand-painted fountain pen

R8,000

This pattern started with the idea of creating a dragon’s scales, but then it morphed and took on a life of its own. The artist, Kseniia Nel, explains that a dragon’s scales would be more rounded, whereas these shapes became more blade- or leaf-like. And as so happens when one allows one’s art to dictate the direction, the end result is something stunning and unanticipated. A transformation.

We created a custom resin mix for the section material … a combination of black and antique gold which has a subtle lustre and also a gentle gleam under certain light.

Kseniia is a versatile artist who has studied in both Ukraine and in Norway where she completed a Masters in Fine Art. She is happy to consider requests for commissions, so if you would like to suggest a particular theme, please let us know via the contact form.

Each of our hand-painted fountain pens is a 1/1 original work of art. No-one else will ever own an identical pen.

Nib:

Available in Jowo #6 or Bock #6 in polished steel. Please select Fine, Medium or Broad at the check-out.

The Jabulani model

SPECIFICATIONS

This is a gently curvaceous model, with a girth of 16 mm (0,6”), narrowing to a 10,7 mm (0,4”) grip section. The relatively large size of the model is to allow the artist sufficient space for their artwork, and the artwork is encased in a layer of clear resin to protect it from getting damaged during day-to-day use. Our logo medallion is embedded in the cap finial which is ever-so-slightly rounded, and the barrel finial is ever-so-slightly conical. The cap is a flush-fit and does not post. The Jabulani model usually comes with a hand-made, cap band and section ring in either Argentium silver or bronze, though this may differ depending on what best suits the artwork. Custom hand-crafted roll stops can be added.
