Dear guests, wellcome to our website!
We are Iris and Stefan from the small medieval town of Mödling in Austria, Europe. Among the things we love to do is writing and drawing with fountain pens, as well a painting and crafting with fountain pen ink and urushi laquer. The (german) name "Tintenschnecke" is literally translated to "Ink Snail" (there is the relation to ink) but the german word tintenschnecke usually refers to a sepia, nautilus or ammonite - and it is an ammonite, a prehistoric cephalopod, that is depicted in our logo.
