The idea for Tom's Studio came from watching his wife Gemma use a plastic mass-produced calligraphy pen which he felt didn't match the quality of her beautiful work. With his background in furniture and product design, which he studied at university and his experience of working in a blacksmith's forge, he decided to make her a better pen that she would love using every day. Their mission is to create beautiful and innovative tools that inspire folks to be creative and benefit from all that it brings.
