Grey Horsehair Sumi-e Paint Brush With Porcelain Ferrule


This brush was made with TX bamboo and my high-quality grey horsehair. The brush has a porcelain ferrule with sgraffito Koi designs. The high-quality grey horsehair is semi-soft, has great flex, strong spring and will make a wide variety of marks, from wide/dynamic to very fine. The bristle head has a rounded tapered shape. 

  • A leather hanging strap
  • The ferrule is porcelain which has a handpainted sgraffito koi design

Traditional Sumi-e style bristle head:

  • The Dark Aubrun Horsehair is 2.5" in length
  • The Handle is 12" 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".
