Dark Auburn Horsehair Sumi-e Paint Brush With Porcelain Ferrule
This handmade brush was made with TX bamboo and my high-quality dark auburn horsehair. The brush has a porcelain ferrule with a sgraffito koi design. The high-quality horsehair is a somewhat coarse, absorbent, 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 which has a handpainted koi on it
Traditional Sumi-e style bristle head:
- The Dark Auburn Horsehair is 5" X 4" in length
- The Handle is 21" 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".
