Autumn bonfire and African wild olive (I) : The Whitney model

The rich reds and golds and rustic wood colours of autumn inspired this pen (which can be bought individually or as one of a matching pair). Looking into the resin and seeing the bright gold shimmering beneath the swirls of red and black is like looking into a bonfire of fall leaves.

Warning: Using this pen in an office environment could be problematic as it would be difficult to concentrate while the patterns and colours offer such a distraction. Plus it is the kind of pen that is going to attract a lot of attention from others. (Fortunately it would be difficult for anyone to steal it and claim it as their own as it is so distinctive. Nevertheless, keep it safe!)

When it comes to the price, it is higher than for our other pens due to the time it takes and the complexity of the work involved. As the wood is not sufficiently stable on its own, Dave virtually has to make two pens: one a hidden insert to maintain the pen’s strength and the second being the outer skin of wood and resin.
