Silent Forest Writing Set – Karelian Curly Birch Inkwell and Dip Pen Clad in Silver Fittings


An ambitious solo project by my father Ivo Daskalov – A complete writing/calligraphy set from a beautiful combination of Karelian Curly Birch wood and silver.


The Silent Forest Writing Set is born out of weeks of meticulous work, design an assembly. It is a combination of objects that bring about an inspiring calm and provide the means for a truly creative and fulfilling writing experience.


The central piece is the smooth and minimal inkwell. In its polished birch base, it houses the removable 10 ml glass well, that will secure the ink of your choice when writing. The upper part is again a solid birch block that plays the role of a lid for the construction. The sterling silver openwork decorates a small space on the bottom and is identical to the decoration on the pen stand from this set. Though not meant for travelling, as the cap is not tightly sealed, the wide and heavy base makes this inkwell a more than secure desk companion and quite protected from turning over.


The glass core is easily removed to be cleaned and refilled with the ink of your choice. The dimensions of the inkwell are 45x55x30 mm. The glass reservoir is 32 mm high, and 25 mm wide with a 20 mm opening.


The pen and its stand are carved from the same piece of Karelian Curly Birch wood as the inkwell base. It’s an exotic but quite comfortable shape, making writing a true joy. The texture of the wood is such a beautiful piece of art from Nature itself and we’ve done our best not to interfere too much with it. The pen is polished to accentuate the texture but not in a mirror polish to nonetheless feel the warm connection with this extraordinary piece of wood. It is 11 cm in length without the removable nib and its stand is 30x50x17 mm in size.


The whole set is housed in a wooden box for safekeeping and travelling.
