White Horsehair Sumi-e Paint Brush


This brush is made with black bamboo and my premium white horsehair. The handle is made with black bamboo and it has a ceramic ferrule with an image of a heron which is all handpainted by me. The premium white horsehair is a super soft, absorbent, has great flex, strong spring, uncut tips and will make a wide variety of marks, from wide/dynamic to very fine.

The brush has:

  • A leather hanging strap
  • The ferrule is ceramic and has a sgraffito heron 

Traditional Sumi-e style bristle head:

  • The White Horsehair is 4" in length
  • The Handle is 14" 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".
