Mountains and Waters / stationery(Ink Plate)

Mountains and Waters
Mountains and Waters

I found that when people write brush calligraphy or draw , they will use the writing brush to scrape the edge of the inkstone to avoid the ink in the brush wouldn’t be so much to insure the fluency of the writing. So I extracted this behavior out and recombined the brush rack to the ink plate together.The idea of the shape is inspired by the Mountains and Waters in Guilin. Refer to the artistic conception of the Mountains and Waters in Guilin, I fetch the characteristic of the lines of the Mountains to be the element of the shape design.
