Coarse Grey Horsehair Sumi-e Paint Brush With Curled White Birch Bark Ferrule

Customer Reviews

Based on 1 review Write a review

This brush was made with bamboo and my high-quality grey horsehair. The brush ferrule was made using a piece of curled White Birch bark. To ensure the ferrule is strong, I coated the bark with a strong, clear epoxy. The super-coarse grey horsehair is very stiff, has great flex, strong spring, and will make a wide variety of marks, from wide/dynamic to very fine.

The brush has:

  • A leather hanging strap
  • The ferrule is made with white birch bark bark

Traditional Sumi-e style bristle head:

  • The dark auburn horsehair is 4.5"X2.5" in length/width
  • The bamboo handle is 12" in length

My brushes are made to create a vast array of marks. When I make a brush I think about all aspects of the tool: how it looks, how it feels in the hand and how it paints - to ensure that the end product is a true "fine art tool".
