The Great Tradition of Ebru Art

13 May 2014 10:26


The art of Ebru (marbling art) has no definite origins. This lack of evidence about the history and original place of marbling art is that we have few inscribed sources related to this art. The general opinion is that marbling art has been in existence at least since the 15th century. However some researchers believe it has roots in the 6th century. Some believe it to have been invented in 13th century Turkistan. This decorative art then spread to China, India, Persia and Anatolia. New forms and techniques were perfected in the process and Turkey remained the center of marbling for many centuries. Up until the 1920s, marblers had workshops in the Beyazit district of Istanbul, creating for both the local and European market, where it is known as Turkish marble paper.

Ebru is a method of aqueous surface design, which can produce patterns similar to smooth marble. The patterns are the result of colour floated on plain water, then carefully transferred to an absorbent surface such as paper or fabric. It is employed as a writing surface for calligraphy, and especially book covers and bookbinding. Part of its appeal is that each print is a unique mono-type.
