Friday Night Flicks: Seyit Uygur

Last week’s Friday Night Flick featured the art of Suminagashi. This week’s flick takes a look at the art of Ebru. The footage of Seyit Uygur at work was shot and edited by the marbler’s son, Oguz Uygur.

    What exquisite imagery. It was a pleasure to browse through all the marbling examples at the end of the article. I’m glad that I read the complete article first because it gave me a better understanding of how these images were achieved. I was astonished at the detail of some, which were as complex as a painting with brush on canvas. Thanks for illuminating another side of paper for this bookbinder.
