We like this paper weights because of their simplicity and the way the wood feels when holding it - having a smooth and warm surface - even no pattern is added - the structure of the wood gives each set a unique impression. Together with the "Purist" water dropper and the "Goose Egg" ink slap, this set is part of our series of original Taoist-inspired Chinese brush painting supplies. These tools are to reflect the harmonious relationship between human beings and nature by staying close to their purpose, being function-oriented and using nature-inspired, organic shapes with materials that have not undergone many processing steps.
