Reed Quills

During my letterpress class this last week, we went out to the lake to pick some reeds.
 These reeds are perfect for making reed quills.  Our teacher showed us how to make them with an X-acto knife and a piece of brass.  They work great, in fact, they work better than some pens that I already own!  I really like being able to feel connected to my artwork a little more, like being able to create the tool that I create artwork with. It's a pretty intense feeling.
