The willow plant used for making artist charcoal grows very quickly and takes only one growing season before it is ready for use. It takes 3 days to turn raw willow sticks into willow charcoal ready for the artist to use. The very best willow rods are selected from each crop to be used in the production of this charcoal. The willow is not compressed and is sorted and burned in its natural diameter and shape, slight variations are characteristic.
