|Title||Modern 20th c. marbled paper, Stormont on Turkish pattern |
|Artist||Guyot, Don |
|Studio Name||Colophon Hand Bindery |
|Place of Production||United States -- Washington (State) -- Seattle |
|Descriptive Notes||Wolfe and Muira: Stormont on Turkish pattern.|
This pattern is created starting with a Turkish base. Then one or more colors would then be mixed with a dispersant, such as turpentine, and thrown onto the bath. These dispersant-mixed colors will appear to be covered with tiny holes, seen here in the lighter brown color. When making this pattern you must work faster than usual to pull the marble because the turpentine will evaporate, closing up this lacy network of holes.
This sample is a second.
The primary colors for this example are grey, light and medium brown and green.
|Collection Notes||This sample is a flat sample from amongst a box of samples Guyot would have used to monitor his inventory and pattern types for his company, Colophon.|
