Coarse White Horsehair Sumi-e Paint Brush With Ceramic Ferrule SC2
This brush was made with my high-quality coarse white coarse tail horsehair. The brush ferrule is ceramic. The super-coarse auburn horsehair is very stiff, has great flex, strong spring, and will make a wide variety of marks, from wide/dynamic to very fine. The tips are also natural, and uncut. The brush has a wormwood bead on the leather hanging strap.
The brush has:
- A leather hanging strap with wormwood bead
- The ferrule is ceramic
- The handle is a repurposed quill bobbin wood that has a brass wrap
Traditional Sumi-e style bristle head:
- The white horsehair is 5"
- The bamboo handle is 13.5" 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".
