Coarse Mixed Horsehair Sumi-e Paint Brush With Ceramic Ferrule SC2
This brush was made with bamboo and my high-quality mixed horsehair. The brush has a ferrule ceramic. The semi-coarse mixed horsehair is 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 head is naturally tapered.
The handle is bamboo and has a burned-in organic pattern and a seed embellishment on the end. The handle also has a leather hanging strap.
The brush has:
- A leather hanging strap
- The ferrule is ceramic
Traditional Sumi-e style bristle head:
- The mixed horsehair is 6"
- The bamboo handle is 15" 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".
