Hello,

Today I present a pen holder that I have used for several years, but now I am giving thought to creating them for others. This holder is cast from water clear urethane for long life and has a frosted surface finish so that it glows when around light.

What are your thoughts?

Love the concept but would prefer the hand holding the pen at a much lower angle in the more or less tripod grip.
Possible?

At the moment since the tool is already created, this particular holder displays the pen in an upright angle so that the pen displays well. It is a tad more erect than a human hand would normally hold the instrument I will admit, but when on a table, the pen is shown in a beautiful fashion.

$75 + shipping and they will be signed and dated.

Today, I was in Paradise Pens here in orange county, and they agreed to accept a couple on consignment. I thought that was very nice....

It is a casting of my hand. I created this piece because I am not a person who appreciates a box as a storage device. If i am going to display my writing instruments, I need the holder to be as unique as the pen itself. I am a modelmaker so the process was easy: I created a casting of my hand using a soft flexible tooling material, made a plaster casting, smoothed and blended the plaster, created a production tool, cast a part. Each casting takes about a day to cure. Initially I polished the piece to a gloss, but it disappears, it really didnt present well. I believe the frosted surface presents much better.
