Regional Brush Project - showing the process of collecting and making brushes from found materials in Brighton and Berkshire.
University of Brighton graduate Ellie Birkhead has created a series of brushes with unusual shapes for cleaning specific objects. Made from beech wood and hog bristles, the brushes that Birkhead produced for her graduate project were each designed for more tasks that simply cleaning shoes or sweeping floors. "The vaguely familiar but unusual brushes challenge the user to define their own functions and purposes in order to explain the suggestive forms."
