Copenhagen-based artist/designer Pernille Snedker Hansen is redefining the centuries old craft of marbling by blowing up its traditional small-scale applications (frequently used in book binding) and applying them to large scale environments. Pernille’s art is built drop by drop as she floats color across the surface of a small pool of water – watching and reacting as water and paint collide. When a desirable pattern emerges, Pernille dips a slat of wood directly ontop of it, freezing the moment as it transfers from liquid to solid form. It’s a stunning process but the real magic of Snedker Studio lies in how Pernille had the vision to multiply its “marbelous” effects by grouping her colorful wood slats and panels to create entire interior environments. When you look at the candy-like-beauty of it all, it’s hard to imagine anyone wanting a simple stain again.
