More than 3,000 years ago, Asian artisans discovered how to turn the residue from burnt wood into one of the most important and lasting vehicles for human expression: ink. For more than a thousand years, the method of making Sumi sticks has remained the same. Soot from pine or certain vegetable oils mized with animal or fish glue is molded and dried to form a well-shaped solid block which, when ground on a stone with water, turns to ink. It is unsurpassed for producing the famous Five Colors, or shades of black, that form the basis of monochromatic Sumi painting. The subtlety of Sumi ink is evident in the variety of tones and values it produces. This stick measures 1-5/8 x 7-1/8 inches and it is 1/2 inch thick.
