Black Horsehair Sumi-e Paint Brush With Porcelain Ferrule
This brush was made with TX bamboo and my premium quality black horsehair. The brush has a porcelain ferrule with a graffiti design. The premium-quality horsehair is super soft, absorbent, has great flex, strong spring and will make a wide variety of marks, from wide/dynamic to very fine. The bristle is shaped into a subtle slant, the hairs are pointed and super soft.
The brush has:
- A leather hanging strap
- The ferrule is porcelain which has a handpainted design
Traditional Rounded Slant Bristle Head:
- The black horsehair is 2.5" in length
- The Handle is 10" 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".

It's great using lovely brushes to play with. I'm no artist but the brush invites you to use it, the hair holds paint well and it is a joy to experiment making shapes/lines/ blocks/swirls - what you will. I'm in the UK so had to wait a bit for delivery, but the tracking was spot on, Elizabeth provides a personal service, so that was a delight. Shame about import charges, but well worth it.
