Black Horsehair Sumi-e Paint Brush with Ceramic Snake Ferrule
This unique and beautiful brush was made with bamboo root and stiff, black horsehair. The bamboo root handle has a ferrule made with a ceramic ferrule shaped like a snake. The horsehair is coarse, stiff, has great flex, strong spring and will make a wide variety of marks. The horsehair has been cut into a traditional Asian brush shape.
The brush has:
- A leather hanging strap
- The ferrule is a natural barnacle
- The black horsehair is 2" in length
- The Handle is 6" 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".
