Black Horsehair Sumi-e Paint Brush with Driftwood Handle
This unique and beautiful brush was made with a piece of Flathead Lake driftwood and my premium black horsehair. The handle is satiny, smooth, and has a leather hanging strap. The wood has a natural gray patina and interesting details and shapes.
The horsehair is super soft, has uncut tips, great flex, strong spring, and will make a wide variety of marks. The horsehair has a traditional Asian brush tapered 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
- Ceramic Ferrule
- The black horsehair is 3.5" in length
- 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".
