About our Pens

Custom pens use a pre-made nib (or nib unit) and everything else is handcrafted. Creating our bespoke pens involves -mainly- the use of a metal and a wood lathe to shape the parts of the writing instruments: Grip section, Body, and Cap. To make these parts we choose materials such as wood, ebonite, metals and acrylics.

 

About this piece:

This pen is inspired by the elegant marble of Carrara.

When sedimentary carbonate rocks (such as limestones) are geologically transformed by heat and pressure, the calcite and/or dolomite are recrystallized to form a metamorphic rock called marble. Because of its granular texture, homogeneity and ability to take a polish, marble has been used for sculptures and other artistic purposes for more than 3,000 years. Marble has been quarried in immense amounts in a number of countries. One of the best known sources of marble is the Apuan Alps in Tuscany in northern Italy near the small port city of Carrara, where numerous quarries have operated since classical times in the nearby mountains.
