Grey Horsehair Sumi-e Paint Brush With Shell Ferrule
This brush was made with TX bamboo and my high-quality grey horsehair. The brush has a natural shell ferrule. The high-quality grey horsehair is semi-soft, has great flex, strong spring and will make a wide variety of marks, from wide/dynamic to very fine. The bristle head has a slant tapered shape.
Traditional Sumi-e style bristle head:
- The grey horsehair is 2" in length
- The handle is 6" 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".
