“I first met Robert a few years ago and couldn’t help but be captivated by him. He’s truly mesmerising, his passion for his art and attention to detail is unquestionable.
I was delighted when Robert asked me to design a specific range of bespoke brushes which would enable him to recreate flowers and foliage, into an edible art form made from sugar. The brushes would need to allow him to building up tone, depth, texture and give pin point accuracy.
The design, balance and perfected taper of each brush was key, even down to the silk like feel of the ‘Taklon’ we used which was another essential dynamic to have very soft fibered bristles, needed for the application of edible coloured dusts onto extremely delicate sugar work.
Fashioned on a beautiful charcoal grey handle with coordinating ferrule, I think we achieved Robert’s wish …. to have a set of ‘go to’ brushes which are handmade to perfection, will enable each artist from any background to recreate stunning results”.
