Handmade Dragon Paint Brush Set
These brushes were made with black bamboo and my premium quality white goat hair and grey horsehair. The bamboo handle has an image of a dragon carved onto the handle. The smaller brush has a shell embellishment and copper fitting.
The larger brush handle has a craving of a dragon wrapping around the handle. It is hard to photograph, and really shows much better in person.
Each brush I make is different and unique. I try to bring out the voices of the materials I use, connecting them with each other in a way that makes them feel complete.
My brushes are made to create a vast array of marks. When I make a brush I think about all aspects of the tool: how it looks, how it feels in the hand and how it paints - to ensure that the end product is a true "fine art tool".
The goat hair brush has a 5 inch long handle and 2.5 inch bristle
The grey horsehair brush as a 1 inch bristle and 4 inch long handle
