Urchin – dot art fountain pen
Inspired by sea urchins which have the most amazingly intricate dot patterns on their shells, Di chose a similar colour scheme to create this dot art, showing the gradual change from one colour fading into another. An interesting aspect about sea urchins is that they have five-fold symmetry (called pentamerism). Sea urchins have rounded dots, called tubercles, to which the spines are attached. The spines are used for defence and to move around.
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 and tapering to rounded ends. It has a triple start thread. It has our logo on the finial, and the finial is beautifully rounded, rather than dead flat, which adds to the pen’s voluptuousness.
