Making a Chinese Calligraphy Brush. The Process. “Wishing Brush.”

chinese calligraphy Looking to buy a particularly special Calligraphy Brush?


You may not do very much better than buy one from Master Lin.
His work seems to be impressive and, as a family business, would seem to show the signs of success through the generations.
Take a look and see!

I found this site today and thought it worthy of some time for a little free promotion. I thought this was an impressive effort at describing the Brush making process.
This should be far more common to find than it is.
Good for Master Lin.

Master Lin:
“Four generations of traditional brush making have long survived in the Republic of Chinas grand capital, the city of Taipei. Lam Sam Yick, our exclusive calligraphy and painting brush supplier, is a family owned company established a century ago. They are famous for their development of high quality brushes by using all natural products. Their number one top seller is the Wishing brush which has been in the making for the past 96 years. What distinguishes this familys success in the brush making industry is locked in their secret technique of creating their brushes. Their system entails using an exact percentage of different hair types to create a perfect brush. These brushes present the calligraphy artist with higher quality by maintaining its original shape during and after usage, as well as allowing the artist different characteristic in their script. Pictured below you will see Master Lin assembling the very favored brush.”
