Getting To Know The Chikuhodo MK-UM (Ume) Powder Brush, Maki-e Series

This is a special day for me because I finally have my very own Chikuhodo MK-UM Powder Brush. This brush is special to me because it now forms as a symbol of “hope” in these trying times. I seriously thought that I wouldn’t be able to go back to work – which was scaring me because, with my job title, I cannot work from home. But, I prayed that eventually, I would be able to head back to the studios, and I did.

This will be my brush for the season.
