Hand Marbled Paper, specialising in suminagashi, also Turkish marbled papers making beautiful paper gifts.

I started paper marbling over 35 years ago, teaching myself the craft having read up many old texts. Initially I specialised in Turkish marbled paper for bookbinders and sold copyright licences for my designs and commissions. My marbled patterns have been featured on National Trust books and were purchased by Marks & Spencer for packaging, stationary and cosmetics. The Royal Mail have also used my designs in their promotional materials for stamp collections. Over the past 35 years my marbled paper designs have been used on book covers, promotional materials and in brand marketing. Some of my marbled papers are held in a number of collections around the world, including, The British Library and Harvard University. All of my work is unique and one off, you won't find these original pieces anywhere else.

In my shop I sell hand marbled Turkish papers and silk scarves that I have made over my career. The papers are perfect for bookbinding, card making and crafting, scrap booking, origami, picture framing, luxury wrapping paper. They would make beautiful First Anniversary Gifts, as your First Anniversary is Paper. The silk scarves make wonderful presents for any occasion being both stylish and unique.

I worked as a professional counsellor for a number of years then returned to creating marbled paper, becoming fascinated with Suminagashi (Japanese Marbling). Suminagashi is the oldest form of marbling and consists of floating ink on water. There is very little control of the pattern that is formed, which is what makes it so compelling. It is in complete contrast to Turkish Marbled Paper where the pattern is highly controlled and repeatable.

I make marbled paper lamp shades with Suminagashi. They are beautiful, unique decorative items, that suit a minimalist or contemporary decor. They are statement pieces that are quietly elegant and would look stunning on a bedside table or equally as a pendant lampshade over a dining table.
