Born in 1973, Renato Crepaldi works in his home studio as a full-time production marbler since 2002. He produces a wide range of traditional and contemporary marbled papers for use in bookbinding, book arts and cartonnage.
He is also engaged in the re-creation of marbled papers as visual objects. His interpretation of centuries old techniques and the employment of modern materials aims to bring to the contemporary environment the mysterious atmosphere of this alchemical art.
• Reproductions of traditional patterns from 18th and 19th centuries.
• Remake of classic patterns with contemporary pigments and metallic accents.
• Sample match, custom paper development and large commissions are welcome.
All papers are marbled using artist grade acrylic paints on carragheenan; the base paper is machine made, 80gsm; the retail size is 26 x 37 inches, long grain.
