Large Hoop Brush: 10"
Handmade brushes for sweeping, dusting... or maybe just for hanging. Brush manufacture dates back to prehistoric times, when wall and cave drawings suggest some form of brush was used. Brushes have been discovered in Egypt, which were made from split palm leaves.
Materials: hard maple, horse hair
The Makers: Fredericks & Mae is the art/design team of Jolie Mae Signorile and Gabriel Fredericks Cohen. The two met through a shared love for materials - Fredericks & Mae started in the piles of feathers, thread, gold and paper that decorated their first studio in 2007. Their collaborative practice has since evolved into a series of objects for the home, garden and sky. Fredericks & Mae is a material anthropolgy of objects with confused origins.
