  • Artist's Brushes for Potters/Painters
    All brushes are made using natural hairs for the heads, West Virgina bamboo for the handles, and leather or linen for the hanging straps. The decorative handle wraps are done with waxed Irish Linen threads.  I hand-craft them all in my Harpers Ferry studio, using strong epoxy resins as the adhesive, and with minimal care will provide many years of use in your studio.

  • Decorating/Calligraphy Brush Assortment
    I currently use 3 different hair types for these production brushes.  The "salt and pepper" black/white is from Gray Squirrel, and the beautiful orange hair is from Red Squirrel.  The longer coarser white and brown mix is Eastern White Tail Deer tail - or "BuckTail"  The squirrel hair is quite soft and absorbent and good for thin to medium materials.  The BuckTail is somewhat coarse and works best for medium (think tomato soup) to thick materials.

  • Small Gray Squirrel Decorating Brush
    The hair in the squirrel brushes is the finest I use, and works well with slightly thinner decorating materials like underglazes, stains, oxides, and is also great for inks and watercolors. These squirrel hair brushes do not work well with VERY thick materials like fat slips.

  • Ringtail Cat Tail Brushes
    Ringtail used to be one of my favorite "go to" hairs for best brushes - but now costs so much and is so hard to find that they had to become a "specialty" item for me.  The hair is great for thin to medium thickness materials and behaves as well as any brush hair you can buy. They are wonderful for watercolor and ink as well. I am very sad that the hair has become so rare and expensive - sorry!!  These are examples brushes vary.  PLEASE NOTE : At times there are no Ringtails available to me - if this should be the case when you order I will contact you with options - including a full refund for the purchase.
