Designed and fabricated along with the fountain pen for artists, this is a holder for a cherished pen or pencil.
It is machined from a solid slab of aluminum, one and half inches thick [overall dimensions in inches : 9 x 6 x 1.5]. With only 3 precisely angled cuts, the slab becomes a very stable pedestal for writing instruments. The mass of the slab keeps it firmly planted on a work-surface, while the elevated perch raises the chosen writing instrument well above desktop clutter.
