This is a very practical art tool I often use when in Yuanli. It's became a staple tool in my creations and I truly miss it when I am elsewhere. That brings to mind a question if an artist can be identified with his/her/its tools and techniques or there's something else underlying everything. Nowadays many of us can still make interesting art without electricity?
