Coarse Black Horsehair Sumi-e Paint Brush With Porcelain Ferrule
This brush was made with bamboo root and my high-quality coarse, black horsehair. The brush has a porcelain ceramic ferrule with sgraffito design. The super-coarse black horsehair is very stiff, has great flex, strong spring and will make a wide variety of marks, from wide/dynamic to very fine.
The brush has:
- A leather hanging strap
- The ferrule is porcelain and handpainted
Traditional Sumi-e style bristle head:
- The black horsehair is 3"X4" in length/width
- The bamboo handle is 18" 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".
