Auburn Horsehair Sumi-e Paintbrush with Ceramic Ferrule
This unique and beautiful brush was made with a piece of Flathead Lake driftwood and my premium auburn horsehair. The handle is super satiny, smooth, and has a ceramic ferrule. The horsehair is super soft, has uncut flog/tips, great flex, strong spring, and will make a wide variety of marks. The horsehair a traditional Asian brush shape. The brush bristle will hold a lot of media and can make very bold and dynamic marks.
The brush has:
- A leather hanging strap
- The ferrule is ceramic
- The auburn horsehair is 2" in length (the white flecks pictured on the bristle is snow)
- The handle is 8" 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".
