Grey Horsehair Sumi-e Paint Brush With Stoneware Ferrule
This brush was made with TX bamboo root and my high-quality grey horsehair. The brush has a stoneware ferrule that has a sgraffito design. The high-qaulity grey horsehair is coarse, stiff, has great flex, strong spring and will make a wide variety of marks, from wide/dynamic to very fine. The brush's short, blunt bristle shape makes it perfect for thicker media, such as cold wax and gel mediums.
The brush handle has:
- A leather hanging strap
- The ferrule is stoneware which has a handpainted design
Short, blunt bristle head is:
- The Gray Horsehair is 1.75" X 2" in length
- The Handle 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".
