|Title||Modern 20th c. marbled paper, Serpentine on wide comb pattern |
|Artist||Guyot, Don |
|Studio Name||Colophon Hand Bindery |
|Place of Production||United States -- Washington (State) -- Seattle |
|Descriptive Notes||Wolfe: Wide comb waved pattern. Muira: Serpentine on Arch marble.|
This pattern is created starting with a Turkish base, probably where the colors were dropped onto the bath sequentially. A comb with one set of teeth set in somewhat narrow intervals is drawn across the bath twice horizontally, once in either direction with the second pass halving the first. Then another comb whose teeth are set at much wider intervals is drawn through the bath once vertically causing the arches to form.
This sample is a second.
The primary colors for this example are black, red and brown.
|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.|
