Brushes and a Vase

This vase was handmade by a former professor, and given to me to be used as a brush holder. The brushes were handmade by an artist friend. They go together very well, and it is a privilege to be able to use them.

His website is packed with wonderful information, and his Youtube videos are quite inspirational:
