Grey Horsehair Sumi-e Paint Brush with Ceramic Ferrule
This brush was made with worm wood and my premium grey horsehair. The brush ferrule was made with porcelain and handpainted. The super-soft grey horsehair 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 procelai
Traditional Sumi-e style bristle head:
- The grey horsehair is 3.25" in length
- The worm wood handle is 10" 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".
