Horsehair Sumi-e Paint Brush With Porcelain Ferrule

$249.00

This brush was made with an antique quill bobbin and my premium-quality grey horsehair. The brush has a porcelain ferrule with hand-drawn sgraffito designs. The premium-quality grey horsehair is very soft, has great flex/spring, is very absorbent, and will make a wide variety of dynamic marks. The head of the brush is SUPER full and thick, it will hold a lot of media. The bristle head has a traditional Sumi-e style cut/shape. 

The brush has:

  • A leather hanging strap
  • The ferrule is porcelain which has a handpainted sgraffito geometric design

Traditional Sumi-e style bristle head:

  • The dark auburn horsehair is 3.75" X 4" in length/width
  • The handle (including the ferrule) is 11.5" 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".
