I LOVE this pen. It has a solid, heavy feel and I use it constantly. I prefer dark, gel ink so I bought Parker gel ink inserts to use and it is perfect. The pen itself is so beautiful and exactly what I wanted. Got it for my birthday and have already gone back and ordered another pen for my friend's upcoming birthday. She is a writer and writes by hand, I know she'll be thrilled. Alex is very talented and has wonderful customer service. Thank you again!!
An ark in the middle of the Ottawa Valley
The business was conceived after three years of turning as a hobby. During that time I was only giving my creations to friends and family, and after a lot of good feedback and encouragement, the business was legally created in December 2011. My specialty are Pens turned in exotic woods and resins, I do bowls, boxes and some other turned pieces as well.
For me, turning is a passion, just getting a perfect and smooth shape from an irregular piece of wood is like a treasure, that's why I named my business Treasures from the Ark, and why the Ark?, is how my family named my woodshed, but that's another story.
Originally, I started turning decorative bowls, platters, boxes, and some abstracts, which were inspired by John Springett, a well-known British mathematician and woodturner. It wasn’t until I discovered pen turning that I found a new world full of possibilities and techniques. Taking baby steps, I started to make wooden pens using exotic woods and gave them away to my family and friends. When I started to see the possibility of a small business from this hobby, I became familiar with alternative materials, like resin castings, deer antler or a combination of these and exotic woods. With more expensive pen kits I could obtain beautiful writing instruments worthy to be in any collector’s hands.
