Special Editions

Posted by Mark Snare on

Special Editions. These will be handcrafted calligraphy, writing tools and accessories that I will release in small batches every few months.  Each collection will have it's own theme, for instance it may be a collaboration with a company I love, like the pens I made from offcut jeans with Hiut Denim Pressed Dorset flowers or a use of material in a novel or sustainable way. The possibilities are endless!

These collections will be my canvas to experiment with new techniques and ideas and an opportunity to bring you totally unique designs with their very own story.
As a result I won't be taking any custom orders for the time being but this doesn't mean that you won't have a say in these designs.  My best ideas have come from you guys! I'd love to know what sort of designs, materials and themes you'd like to see in the comments below.
