I will finish writing reviews for the ROSSI products after Christmas. I just want to share with you my Christmas present. 

Wolfgang Engel

There’s this quaint little town in the Sunshine Coast hinterland called Eumundi, which is home to an artist called Wolfgang Engel. Wolfgang is best known for his wonderful hand-blown glass pen sets. With an attention to detail in the nib, combined with a Venetian form of decoration in the handle, these pens reflect a craftsman with an engineering background.

Ever since I discovered his gallery earlier this year, I knew what I wanted for Christmas. Fortunately, with the help from family, my Christmas came early and I was able to pick out my favourite pen set from the gallery.

Amethyst Pen Set

Not only does it look beautiful, it writes beautifully. I’m still getting used to writing with it, but I must admit it’s one of my favourite gifts so far.

I placed my Diamine Majestic Purple ink into the inkwell, just to match with the set. Did you know that purple is my favourite colour? You do now!

Wolfgang also does custom requests and his sets are ideal for Awards, Trophies or Corporate gifts. If you’re in the neighbourhood, his gallery along with Tina Cooper’s work is a must-see.

You can check out his website for examples of his work and contact details.
