******************************************

Master Xu has been making Xuan Brushes since 1976 and has made over one million brushes since then. He is very proud of making brushes because the brushes facilitate people’s creativity and have been used by so many artists to produce so much artwork.

Making Xuan brushes is a lot of hard work and does not make much money: there are over 200 steps in the process of making a Xuan brush and all the steps have to be done by hand. Because of this, very few young people would like to learn this skill now.

Master Xu is very proud to have been making brushes for 40 years, we salute his dedication to his craft and we are very proud to be able to bring them to you.

My first ink stone (the last one I had was plastic). It's very smooth and quite large. It has a large surface for grinding and a large well for dipping small to relatively large sized brushes. I could not be happier with this, as the brushes I have been using are quite large I can submerge them in ink easily with this stone. It's absolutely perfect. Note; I put a regular sized brush in the picture to show a size comparison.

It's such a cute little dropper! I was very happy to see it arrive in perfect condition thanks to the very careful packaging! It is very pretty and the perfect size for its purpose. It also arrived very fast alongside the rest of the products I ordered!
