“My interest in brush making started about 25 years ago. My skills have evolved from techniques borrowed from fly fishing, wrapping the fishing rod and splitting the base where the ferrel/brush end is located. There has been an evolution, although I still have somewhat humble techniques. I am most interested in the line I am able to develop with the brush. So, each choice in animal fur and construction of the handle will influence the line one is able to make.
I am more interested in a calligraphic line, the dragging of pigment/glaze. An early painting class I had was based on the wisdom of exploring the potential vocabulary of the brush. The is still true in influencing the marks one makes.”
