Lucy McGrath

Marmor Paperie was started by designer-maker Lucy McGrath with the aim of breathing new life into the traditional art of marbling, a centuries-old technique of 'painting’ on to water, then capturing the design on paper.

Lucy binds journals and sketchbooks using her papers, so every book is a unique piece. Marmor Paperie was awarded The Arts Society/Cockpit Arts Award, supported by the Heritage Crafts Association, in September 2016 which provides support for practitioners of endangered crafts.
