Mizu Marbling Art - what we do
What is "mizu marbling" you ask? Mizu means "water" in Japanese. Water marbling has a long history dating back to the 1100's. It is believed to have started in Japan as a form of inks floating on water. As the years past it was used in other parts of the world for decorative book bindings and even for anti-forgery on currency. Today the techniques are simpler and can be used on paper, fabric and even wood! This beautiful and unique art form was so secretive in its process that not one artist would do the entire piece from beginning to end.
I have decided to bring this amazing yet mysterious art form to you!! You now have the opportunity to experience the magic of this art for yourself. You do not have to be an artist, as a matter of fact anyone of any age and skill level can make a beautiful one of a kind work of art. Make plans to join me at one of our area farmer's markets, fairs, festivals, wineries or contact us to schedule a party (go to our party & events page for more info) or studio session.
In the on-line shop you can find ready made silk scarves, pillow cases, picture frames, bandanas and silk hankies for purchase. I have also made available gift certificates and the option to book a Mizu Marbling party or event!
