Here is a Jr. Statesman Fountain Pen. It is made with Brecciated Quartz. That just means that at some point it was crushed up and then re-fused back together. The fit isn't as good as I would like, but I'm getting better. Comments and criticisms are welcome.
Hi folks, I wanted to share a few pieces of my work now that I've been lurking around for a while I've been a full time pen maker for about 5 years now and am proud of some of the commissions I've had. Here is some of my work: Below is a pen I was commissioned to make for the city of Philadelphia to present to His Holiness Pope Francis during his visit. It is made of custom cast sterling silver and wood removed from Independence Hall during an 1800's renovation. A sister pen I made for the city is being housed in the Philadelphia History Museum. You may have seen a short write-up on this in Pen World Magazine a couple of months ago. This was a custom ordered Lapis Lazuli fountain pen with 18k nib. This is my Palladian pen, made from Yule marble quarried from the same source as the marble for the Lincoln Memorial and Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. The hardware is custom designed solid sterling silver with a rhodium plated 18k nib. This was featured in the June 2015 Now section of Pen World Magazine. Below is the Alpha, my first series of kitless pens. Shown here in vintage cebloplast and a black oxide nib. My second series of kitless pens, the Beta, features a nickel plated tear drop clip. The material is flexigran from Richard Greenwald. I have another 5 pens in the works right now, you can find me on Instagram where I post a good amount of behind the scenes shots (search GWPens). If you're local to Pitman, NJ feel free to reach out to arrange a time to stop by my showroom. Thanks for looking!
