White Horsehair Sumi-e Paint Brush With Porcelain Ferrule
This brush was made with an antique quill bobbin and my highest-quality white horsehair. The brush has a porcelain ferrule with a sgraffito wave design. The white horsehair is a super soft, absorbent, has great flex, strong spring and will make a wide variety of marks, from wide/dynamic to very fine.
The brush has:
- A leather hanging strap
- The ferrule is porcelain which has a handpainted Koi on it
Traditional Sumi-e style bristle head:
- The Gray Horsehair is 3" X 3" in length
- The Handle is 12" 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".
