chinese calligraphy tools

my collection of Chinese calligraphy brushes all acquired during my stay at Hangzhou School of Fine Arts. The feel, look and touch of Chinese traditional tools is incomparable.

a porcelain brush rest, stone paper weights, an ink block with new ink and a box of brushes.

a wooden vice to hold the seal stone for carving and the seal carving chisels.

a pot of seal ink paste and a hand brush for cleaning off the dust and bits.

all the boxes for the tools are clad in patterned material, to practice scores of copy books are available.
