Grey Horsehair Sumi-e Paint Brush with Porcelain Ferrule


This brush is made with an antique quill bobbin and my premium grey horsehair. The handle is made with bamboo and it has a ceramic ferrule with a sgraffito Koi fish. 

The premium grey horsehair is a very soft, absorbent, has great flex, strong spring and will make a wide variety of marks, from wide/dynamic to very fine. This bristle head on this brush is super full, it will make very large and expressive marks.

PS - this brush was a favorite of my sweet fur baby Sam :)

The brush has:

  • The brush as a leather hanging strap
  • The ferrule is ceramic and has a sgraffito koi fish 

Traditional Sumi-e style bristle head:

  • The Gray Horsehair is 4" X 4" in length/width
  • The Handle is made with an antique quill bobbin and is 9" 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".
