[Sold] Tribute to Dickinson hand-painted fountain pen

R11,500

Hanna Farmer’s tribute to Emily Dickinson shows two very different sides to the poet. On the cap, Hanna has written and illustrated excerpts from the poem, Hope is The Thing with Feathers. It shows a woman surrounded by birds, one perched on her hand and another pair of swallows on a wintry branch. The birds in the sky are being buffeted by a gale, representing Hope remaining true to her, no matter the hardship, while never asking for anything in return.

The barrel features elements from the poem, Because I Could Not Stop For Death, which deals with the inevitability of death, and portrays death as a calm companion on the journey to the afterlife.

This pen was made by us at Stanford Pen Studio, painted and zendoodled by Hanna then coated in a clear resin by ourselves and given its final shape, polished, and buffed. It has a silver cap band, section ring, and silver logo medallion in the cap finial, and we have added a matching turquoise section.

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