Handmade Large Sumi-e Paint Brush with Ceramic Ferrule
This brush was made by Elizabeth. The brush has a dragon image painted onto the ceramic ferrule. The bristles are my grey horsehair, they are soft, somewhat course and very flexible.
This is a very large brush, the bristles are 7" in length and the handle is 23" long. The brush has a natural ammonite fossil embellishment on the end and a leather hanging strap..
This brush can hold a lot of media and can make very large and dynamic marks.
The ceramic ferrule was made by potter Kim Filiaggi. I painted the dragon image that is on this ferrule of this brush.
