Oornament studio designed the Landscape Tail collection of acrylic and oil paint brushes with sculptural porcelain handles and earthy colors.
Brushes imagined as artistic expressions, rather than tools strictly to serve a functional outcome. Each of brushes can be used for a different purpose, from laying in large strokes to more controlled figurative work, and the bristles vary in their formation, density, and length. The collection comes in acrylics and oils series.
To craft the collection, designers traveled to Jingdezhen, China, a region renowned for its porcelain and ceramic production. They worked with a local artisan to make the paint brushes by hand. While the handles feature kiln-fired kaolin porcelain with a glazed finish, the bristles have different patterns and densities to suit various styles of painting. The brushes feature hand-bound bristles as well as marine-grade stainless steel ferrules.
Artists can use the Ridge, Pebble, Moon, and Peak brushes to lay paint in larger strokes, rhythmic movements, or precise lines. Depending on design, the brushes allow users to fill larger areas or add details to an artwork.
