Aimia Artworks ~ Columbus, OHWatercolor marbling was perfected early in the 15th century, in the area of the Middle East that now encompasses Turkey, Iraq and Iran, but very soon became cloaked in a secrecy that lasted centuries--a secrecy imposed first by artisans serving the Ottoman Emperors and then by the European craft guilds whose proscriptions against revealing details of the process extended to exile and even death. Those brave few who nevertheless committed its details to paper for posterity have thereby earned our eternal gratitude. They made possible the 20th-century revival of marbling in America, from which the craft now enjoys a renaissance of research, experimentation, and artistic refinement throughout the world.
