Large White Horsehair Sumi-e Paintbrush With Driftwood Handle
This listing is for a very special large white horsehair Sumi-e paintbrush. It has a 7" long bristle that has natural un-cut tips. The bristle hair is specially intended for creating larger brushes. It is my most premium bristle material. It is soft, absorbent, and has good spring/flex. This length and size of bristle hair, particularly in white is expensive to procure.
|I selected the driftwood handle and the ferrule was made specifically to create this brush. I wanted to be sure all of the different elements of the brush fit together well and are proportionate to one another.|
The driftwood I used for the handle is from the North Shore of Flathead Lake, I found it this fall. The handle has been sanded and the ends shaped to ensure that it is comfortable to hold. The handle also has a leather hanging strap.
The ferrule is ceramic, had has a blue-grey, red-brown glaze that has subtle highlights.
- The handle is 18" in length including the ceramic ferrule
- The premium white horsehair is 7" in length
For anyone that is interested in working large, this is a fantastic choice. It is a brush that can make a wide variety of marks and is suited for working on large-scale art.
