Black Horsehair Sumi-e Paint Brush with Ceramic Ferrule


This unique and beautiful brush was made with a piece of Flathead Lake driftwood and coarse black horsehair. The handle is super satiny, smooth and has a ceramic ferrule with a bamboo painting. The horsehair is coarse stiff, has great flex, strong spring, and will make a wide variety of marks. The horsehair has been cut into 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 black horsehair is 4" in length
  • The Handle is 15" 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".
