Black Horsehair Sumi-e Paint Brush with Ceramic Ferrule BHS #101
This unique and beautiful brush has a bamboo handle, ceramic ferrule, and my premium black horsehair. The handle is super satiny, smooth, and has a beautiful burned-in organic block pattern. The end of the brush has a piece of natural reed.
The horsehair is very soft but still has great flex, and strong spring, and can make a wide variety of marks. The brush bristle has a traditional Sumi-e style tapered shape, and it is long, 5" in length.
The brush bristle will hold a TON of media and can make very bold and dynamic marks. The tips are uncut, natural tips.
This is a larger brush, the handle is proportionate to the brush head.
The brush has:
- A leather hanging strap
- The handle is 10.5" in length, including the ferrule
- The ferrule is ceramic
- Is 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".
