I love the element of randomness in marbling - you can mix the colours, but once you've dropped them onto the size, you have to relinquish control and simply guide the patterns as they appear.
Designer-maker Lucy McGrath uses methods that have barely changed for centuries. A form of print-making where each sheet is completely unique, paper marbling had its heyday in the nineteenth century where it was commonly used for book endpapers.
Lucy aims to breathe a new life into marbling, experimenting with modern colours and techniques to inspire a digital age.
