Wood art and design

I have always been drawn to art and design, making anything from bathroom cabinets to soap stone carvings of the Zambezi river god, Nyaminyami. My current focus in wood is centered on designing pens and occasional watches.

My individually crafted wood art and design products include:

  • roller-ink, nib-ink (fountain) and ball point pens and pencils

  • watches

  • bowls

  • furniture

  • kitchen cabinetry

Pens, pencils and watches

Check out the pens and pencils that are for sale here

I craft a wide range of uniquely Tasmanian pens, pencils and watches. Each individually designed piece is sold at a reasonable price.

  • All my products are individually hand-crafted from unique, beautiful and increasingly rare Tasmanian timbers

  • All of the timbers I use have been salvaged from the Tasmanian forest floor after commercial forestry felling operations have been completed and the timber has been discarded

  • Timbers are cut into blanks, air dried, re-cut, graded and finally shaped into the uniquely crafted pieces, including pens, that are detailed on these pages

  • Components and mechanisms are of the highest quality and sourced from Europe and the United States

  • Only natural colours, dye lacquers, waxes and finishes are used and they are non-toxic and food safe

Whilst I try to maintain a reasonable stock, I also make custom pens to order. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have a request. I am also happy to do commission pieces from unique or specific materials.

For information on how to care for your pen, pencil or watch, or how to change the refills, ink or leads click to the wood care page here.

I also design watches using uniquely Tasmanian timbers, the highest quality quartz or Swiss mechanical movements. The watches I currently make are by commission only and are priced from AU$500
