Air I – Suminagashi Art


Suminagashi marbled paper – 2013


This minimalist piece is part of my collection of suminagashi marbling work. Suminagashi is the ancient Japanese technique of marbling paper decoration, using nothing but water and ink. Suminagashi means “floating ink”.

The suminagashi design was hand made on washi Japanese paper, and then cut and attached to a large 200 gms. acid-free paper.

You can read about my experience with this technique here.

Size: 42cm x 42cm (16.5″ x 16.5″).

Signed on the front.

Sent flat.
