"Nature is full of genius, full of the divinity, so that not a snowflake escapes its fashioning hand." - Henry David Thoreau

Finding her inspiration in the farms, gardens, and forested environs that surround her Connecticut studio, artist Merrie Buchsbaum captures the enchantment and serenity of the natural world in her charming art work. Studied in the arts, the natural sciences and nutrition, Merrie sows the seeds of all her passions in her gorgeous collection of three floral pens.

Each floral pen is infused with botanicals plucked directly from Merrie's cottage garden. To make these functional pieces of art, the artist grinds her dried petals, seeds, and stems and combines them with resin to create the natural color and texture. Each individually crafted pen is a pleasure to look at and to handle, and with every swirl of its barrel, each stunning specimen is just the thing to inspire any wordsmith to spring into action. And having a little bit of Merrie's flowers in your pen makes your gift even that more special. Handmade in Connecticut.

Sold individually.

Exclusively for UncommonGoods

Merrie Buchsbaum has been a polymer artist for over 25 years. She is a self-taught artist and has a background in ceramics, photography and art history. Merrie is well known for her sense of color and patterns. More recently Merrie began incorporating natural ingredients into the polymer just like other cultures blended organic matter into clay. As a result Merrie is able to achieve unique colors and textures from nature. Merrie’s work has been widely published in major newspapers, magazines and seen on CBS as well as Fox news. In 2014 the Made in America movie was released nation wide. Merrie was chosen as one of four leading businesses to tell the story about Made in America.

              I bought two of these pens, one for myself and one for my sister for Christmas. I love the look and feel of it when you write with it. Just got it though so can't comment for long term use. It is a very nice looking pen and writes well.

                  Love the Rose smelling pen and the pink color.
                  It is nice handling in my hand. Really like to use it and carry in my purse, people always ask where I got it. Was sent to sister as birthday gift.

                            i purchased the rosebud pen for myself for use when writing in my journal. it has a gorgeous soft pink hue and truly does look just as lovely it does in the photo!when holding the pen in hand, the barrel is pleasingly soft to the touch and the overall weight of the pen is perfect, being neither too heavy nor too light. i chose the rosebud, as pink is my favorite color; however, i would definitely consider the other color choices for future purchases both for myself and to give as presents!
