[Sold] Ukiyo – the floating world fountain pen
The Japanese word Ukiyo is the inspiration behind this hand-painted fountain pen … the floating world, detached from daily realities, dreamlike, transitory, yet still lightly anchored to others. Hanna has taken this idea and played with it, incorporating quirky hanging gardens and towns aloft in the clouds, joined by rope ladders and flag buntings … a swing hanging suspended in space ,,, a cat fishing over the side of an island in the air … an air yacht, with a propellor in the expected place as well as one on top of the mast, tethered to an island, with another cat on board.
The pen was made by us at Stanford Pen Studio, painted and zendoodled by Hanna Farmer, then coated in a clear resin by ourselves and given its final shape, polish, and buffing. It has a bronze section ring and bronze logo medallion in the finial. One of a kind!
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.
