    Ebru, also known as paper marbling, is one of the most important Turkish arts. This consists of spattering ochre using brushes made of horsetail on the surface of a viscous mucilage, in order to obtain marvelous patterns carefully transferred onto paper.

    Ebru Uygun stands out with her modern vision of this traditional turkish art by developing new techniques. Instead of transferring her art on paper, Uygun has reflected it on wood, tile, and cloth, and therefore has integrated The Art of Ebru into our everyday life. “The harmonious dance of the colors reflects my wonderland!” says Uygun, “It’s a world where evil has no place. It’s pure and clear. When I’m marbling, I discover new worlds… It’s a joy.”
