Artist: Pernille Snedker Hansen

July 12, 2012 by Erin Fletcher

As the founder of Snedker Studios, Pernille Snedker Hansen uses nature as her inspiration for creating surfaces to challenge the aesthetics of interior spaces.  By combining western marbling with Japanese suminagashi, Pernille emphasizes the growth rings with vibrant pigments in her appropriately titled work Marbelous Wood.  

As a student at North Bennet Street School, I had the opportunity to learn and practice marbling.  It’s a fascinating process, where pigments float and spread on top a watery surface and once you lay your paper down the pigments are captured into the fibers.
