Karen Lim is a modern calligrapher, designer and calligraphy educator based in Vancouver, Canada. She has designed a beautiful calligraphy collection that we are excited to carry. Her brand, Written Word Calligraphy specializes in gorgeous calligraphy products for beginners and stationery lovers.
This is an oblique calligraphy pen holder that is specifically designed for holding pointed nibs. It is adjusted to hold the Nikko G but it can also fit many other similar pointed pen nibs. The resin body was designed to 0.75 inches in thickness, for a comfortable, ergonomic grip.
When Karen was designing this pen, she was inspired by the whimsical, free-flowing shapes that alcohol ink arts created. She loved how every piece would always come out very unique, and yet it could still reflect the personality and style of the artist. As a modern calligrapher, she has always believed that each and every one of us has a unique calligraphy “voice” that they can share with the world. As she designed this pen, she sought to reflect this vision through a minimal color palette, while crafting a shape that would encourage good grip, be comfortable to write with over time, and aesthetically pleasing. This pen is suitable for right-handed and left-handed writers.
Due to the handmade nature of this pen, the resin pattern will vary from pen to pen. The brass flange may be adjusted to fit other nibs using needle-nose pliers. Brass material may develop a patina over time. Packed in a luxury paper box that doubles as storage.
