Let your Calligraphy Bloom

A beautiful and balanced calligraphy pen designed to make your work blossom.

6 years of designing and handmaking calligraphy pens have led me to create 'The Bloom'.  It's my most versatile, balanced and beautiful calligraphy pen to date.

Blooming Clever!

Just like my Flourish range, the Bloom's unique Universal Flange makes changing and holding nibs, big or small, an absolute breeze. Simply tighten or loosen the screw and pop your nib of choice in until you have a perfectly snug fit.  Probably one of the most important features is the ability to adjust the angle of the nib.  As no calligrapher holds their pen in exactly the same way, this feature allows you to achieve the perfect amount of pressure on the page without the dreaded snag!

Beauty is in the eye of the nib holder.

With it's organic compound curves, the body of the pen is as beautiful as it is functional. It's the perfect cross between my Carrot and original Flourish pen, with just the right amount of grip whilst feeling secure and balanced in the hand.

The solid brass tail moves the centre of gravity to the centre of the pen so that you have full control and lightness of touch on your upstrokes.

Secret Nib Compartment.

Nib tins, who needs 'em.  Your Bloom conceals up to 3 nibs, so you can easily take your favourites with you wherever you go.

    Work of art

    Still to use the pen but the workmanship that has obviously gone into it is amazing. On the strength of that we have just ordered of the lumps and pocket pen

    Bloom Oblique

    I have been practicing Copperplate calligraphy for about a year. It feels like it was a huge learning curve because I am left handed and the nib constantly scratched the paper. I tried so many different things but just thought that it was one of the drawbacks of being left handed and trying to do calligraphy. I finally bought the Bloom Oblique pen. It arrived today. I put the same nib in that I used earlier that actually put a hole in one of my practice pages. I tested the pen right out of the box, not even adjusting it, and to my utter amazement, it just glided over the page! I was astounded. I wish I had bought this sooner and cannot stress enough to anyone practicing calligraphy that high quality materials matter. This is a beautiful pen and am so happy with my purchase. Thank you.

    Bloom Calligraphy Pen

    I have now used this beautiful penholder for a while and I love it! It is heavier than other penholders I have and it took a little time for me to get used to that, but now I love it. The weight makes it easier for me to write without pressure, my letters look better. I am so glad I bought it! And it is also gorgeous to look at! Thank you Tom!
