Thelma is a unique wood pen that I hand turned from a Kentucky tobacco stick. I found the tobacco stick in a more than 100-year-old barn in Jessamine County, Kentucky, near the Kentucky River.
Every now and then I enjoy playing with shape and form to design a one-of-a-kind, yet comfortable-to-use, pen. Any marks, lines, or “scars” in the wood are natural and are a result of the wood having been used in a tobacco barn for about 100 years.
This streamline-style unique wood pen with black ink twists to extend the ink for writing and twists the opposite direction to retract. The pen is refillable and comes with a pen case and care instructions.

A little about me….
I’m a historical archaeologist and spend my days excavating sites, analyzing artifacts, and writing up my findings. When I’m not in the field, you’ll find me in my woodshop. I primarily use found and reclaimed wood from here in Central Kentucky. It’s my hope that incorporating elements of the wood as I found it into each piece serves as a reminder that the object you see once was part of a beautiful, living tree.
