Glass Inkwell Memo

Care in the selection of raw materials, and attention during all stages of production,

have resulted in a high-quality ink that can satisfy the most demanding calligrapher.

The term inkwell comes from the ancient Greek word calamos, a name that stood for the pointed rod at the end of the pen that was used for writing.

In time, the term Inkwell came to be matched by the small container that contained the ink used to write the inkwell.

The vessel, often made of glass, pewter, porcelain or brass, was placed beside the person about to write.

It was filled with an ink made from various pigments such as plant berries or, carbon black.

The history of the inkwell goes back to the Egyptians. In fact, they were responsible for the first wooden tablets where two color bowls were carved, one for black and the other for red.

The Romans, on the other hand, used actual jars that were often highly decorated.

In the Middle Ages, the art of the inkwell became a fashion, and in fact they became increasingly refined and valuable objects.
