  1. Stunning desk set. Nice bright, fun colours. Picture an old dark oak or weathered pine desk and spread these cuties on for a splash of colour. Bringing fun into the whole experience.

    Just imagining the whole range of colours on a set modelled on the what-was-once Conway Stewart Belliver type of shape. Oooooooh. I am thinking of your “The Bard” pens here, they do have a striking similarity.

    The closest pen I have to your desk pens is a 25 year old rotring 1.1 art pen and I love the shape. Mine is, black. Old, classic and road worn. Yours however bring the desk pen kicking and screaming into the 21st Century. Great concept.

    Superb work, I really like the pens you have created. An actual living art form which can be used and admired at the same time.

    Best Regards.

    Dave.

    Ps. Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year!

    • Wow, thank you so much for your wonderful comments! Desk pens are incredibly fun to write with.

      As for the Bard, it is indeed inspired by Conway Stewart’s Belliver. While I loved the Belliver’s shape, it was too short and thin for me to use comfortably, so I created something similar in a heftier style. I can easily see on in Amber Water on my own desk….
