.... I've gotten stares and compliments on my pen and pencil and you better believe I guard them with my life (smiles). I appreciate fine and unique artwork which is what you create. The price is worth every penny." Adrienne M.


"I just got back from a big art show in Gaithersburg, MD and saw lots of pens but none as nice as yours!!!! My husband smashed my original pen from you in the car door just recently and I'm in the market for another one. It was the space writer with the silver." Sue P.


Just received the Space Pen in today's mail. First, thank you for the prompt response.  I certainly did not expect delivery this soon. But most of all, I want to complement you on your work.  Not only the beauty of the work, but the attention to detail; balance, dimensions, even the placement of the clip in such a way that it clips securely to a dress shirt, yet enough spring to allow for a heavier garment. This is truly a work of craftsmanship and art. You know, I hope, that this product is a value worth more than the ...  I'll be proud to use it and happy to let everyone know where they can buy their own. Paul E.


A. B., I received the pen, its absolutely beautiful.  I will cherish it always!  I have a dilemma now - I'm not sure which one of your great pens I should use, they're both so great!  The engraving came out really nice as well. I can't wait to show it off!

 The pens arrived yesterday evening and I am very pleased with them. Thanks for your good artisanship and service. Warmest wishes to you and yours for a blessed Christmas and an enriching New Year. Bob


Yesterday, I bought a beautiful malachite fountain pen from you on Telegraph Avenue in Berkeley.  I just love it!  Thank you, so much, for crafting it.  The balance is perfect, and I particularly like the smooth lines of the barrel.  (So many "art" pens have a sharp transition from the nib to the barrel -- a feature that makes it uncomfortable to write for any length of time.) While I was shopping at your booth, you showed me an equally lovely lapis lazuli fountain pen.  It has been burning a hole in my imagination ever since.  As I mentioned when we met yesterday, I used to cut cabochon gemstones years ago -- mostly malachite and lapis.  Since I am also a fountain pen collector, pens made out of these two stones hold special meaning for me.  Elizabeth


A harmonious blend of art and technology. That is how your creation in my possession can be best described. You are not only a woodworker, as you modestly describe yourself but also an artist. Not only is it beautiful but writes like a dream.
