About me

Thomas Hörold

Growing up in a family of craftsmen, I have been working with wood since I was a child. In the end, it was my children who made me learn woodturning. Now grown up, they both live in America. When I was thinking about a personal memento of their home country, I had the idea to turn a writing instrument out of the wood of trees from our garden. So my son received a pen, made from the wood of the walnut tree in front of our house, which he planted himself when he was two years old. I made my daughter a rollerball pen from the wood of the cherry tree, under which she loved to play as a child. That’s how I came to my passion, which still doesn’t let go of me today. It has become a purpose in life for me, through which I can find peace and at the same time realize my ideas. I attach particular importance to the quality of my writing instruments and their attractive design. They can help to deepen or rediscover the joy of handwriting. This can be especially successful if the pen has a personal meaning for the writer.

In today's world, writing often means hitting the key on a keyboard. With my pens, I hope to contribute to the rediscovery of the joy that handwriting has to offer.
