Black Horsehair Sumi-e Paint Brush with Ceramic Ferrule Art Supplies Elizabeth Schowachert Art

Black Horsehair Sumi-e Paint Brush with Ceramic Ferrule


This unique and beautiful brush was made with bamboo root and high-quality black horsehair. The bamboo handle has a porcelain ferrule. The horsehair is semi-stiff, has great flex, strong spring, is absorbent, and will make a wide variety of marks. The horsehair has been cut into a short blunt 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 1.5" in length
  • The Handle is 8.5" 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".
