Black Horsehair Sumi-e Paint Brush with Ceramic Ferrule
This unique and beautiful brush was made with a driftwood handle, a ceramic ferrule, and high-quality coarse black horsehair. The handle is super satiny, smooth, and has a beautiful natural dotted and lined pattern that mimics the ferrule design.
The horsehair is coarse, has great flex, has strong spring, and will make a wide variety of marks. The brush bristle has a traditional Sumi-e style tapered shape, and it is long, 3.75" in length. The brush bristle will hold a TON of media and can make very bold and dynamic marks. Because the bristle is coarse, it also works well making fine lines and unexpected marks.
This is a large brush, the handle is proportionate to the brush head.
The brush has:
- A leather hanging strap
- The handle is 15" in length, including the ferrule
- The ferrule is ceramic
- Is 3.5" in length
- The brush head has a traditional tapered shape
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".
