Default Art Nouveau kitless fountain pen

My latest attempt has an art nouveau theme, featuring a hand carved copper barrel and cap, with ebonite section. The pen took about two weeks to make and was finished about a week ago, then I spend two days on the box.
The leather box has a carved and painted top to match the theme of the pen.


Q&C welcome

That is AMAZING!!! What do you use to carve the copper? And what nib are you using? Copper electroplated Stainless steel would look cool after patina with this pen.

The box is a work of art in itself. Thanks for sharing.

Thank you Danny. I use traditional hammer and chisel techniques to carve metal. I use stainless steel nibs and ebonite feeds which I make myself.

Tiaan - Great work, similar process for tooling the copper and the leather. Do you start with copper tubing or a copper sheet?

A stunning piece of work Tiaan. Seeing what you have to work with is also especially telling of your skills and artistry. I wish you the best to keep up this work - very nice to see.

I stand among the choir and sing in harmony.
Beautiful work. I'm in awe.
Do you make these for yourself or do you sell to discerning buyers?
