Arresting and provocative, this handmade solid oak scrubbing brush may ward off evil and dirt in the same stroke. Yet in a domestic space, this contemporary artifact is a potent observation of symbology in the modern world.

With much of the work we produce there’s a conflict and confluence of function both Brush #1 and Brush #2 are rare and collectible craft objects in that form. Acting as a talisman to scrub away our sins, to scrub away the dirt of the world.
It seems each generation needs to obtain its own enlightenment and this may be part of our understanding in the modern world.
