Handmade Dragon Sumi-e Paint Brush
This brush was made with black bamboo and high-quality grey color horsehair. The bamboo handle has an image of a dragon carved onto it. The bristles are high-quality grey horsehair and shaped into a nice large round. The bristles have good flexibility and are somewhat coarse.
The brush handle has a carving of a dragon wrapping around the handle. It is hard to photograph and really shows much better in person. The end of the handle has natural stone and leather hanging strap.
Each brush I make is different and unique. I try to bring out the voices of the materials I use, connecting them with each other in a way that makes them feel complete.
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".
The 5" inch handle is really comfortable to hold
2.25" premium grey color horsehair bristles.
