Hovey brushes have been refined
and improved over a 30 year period.
They are made with deertail which is a soft, pliable hair,
slightly wavy in texture. It produces a brush tip that has a lot of
'air', i.e., it will hold a great deal of material. This makes it
great for potters (brushes made for watercolor or calligraphy tend
to run dry too quickly when used with slips and glazes). The soft
texture of the hair does cause the brush to be a bit floppy. While
this takes some getting used to, I think you'll find it works to
your advantage since the brush will follow the compound curves of a
pot more easily.
