This piece is called ‘Hikka’ (brush holder), a work by inkstone sculptor 5th Generation Nagura Hozan, who has raised the value of inkstones from the strong image of ’tools’ for rubbing inksticks, to ‘crafts and works of art’ that are recognized by the government.
Inkstones made from 3 types of stone, Kinpo stone, Engan stone and Homei stone, which can be found in Mt. Horaiji, are called ‘Horaiji Inkstones’ and are considered to be the most prominent of the inkstones due to their beauty and practicality. This work is a brush holder made from one of those that made the most prominent inkstones, ‘Homei stone’.
It is very large as a brush holder, but its profoundness and presence are overwhelming. The redness of the iron on the surface, which is a characteristic of Homei stone, is left boldly and gives a different profound attractiveness to that of the inkstone. As a piece of work, it is a real gem that combines both beauty and practicality.
Since it is made from natural stone, in this world there are no 2 brush holders the same.
This real gem is recommended for those who are particular about calligraphy tools, and those who feel that this brush holder is ‘more valuable than a tool’.
In a paulownia box.
Engraved with ‘5th Generation Hozan’
