I designed and made this artist's brush rest to use when painting my various ceramic pieces. It works so well I decided to make them available to my fellow Etsy artists. When you're working with several brushes and colors you don't want them rolling around and coming in contact with each other. This solves that problem nicely. It is really quite handy. It measures approximately 3 3/4"W x 1 1/4"H x 1 1/4"D. It is made of fine porcelain and has been glazed and high fired to cone six 2232 degrees F.
