(HOW TO) Swirl
A little bit about our SWIRL artefacts and a How-To guide on creating your own swirly handicrafts
SWIRL is a series of geometric forms stacked upon one another to create multi-dimensional, functional sculptures. The unique process involves recycling the powdered residue from the marble industry, mixed with pigment and resin to create blocks of material that can then be sawn, sliced and turned on a lathe. Substantial in weight, smooth in texture and bold in pattern, Swirl will inject a fresh pop sensibility into any setting.

A STEP BY STEP GUIDE TO MARBLING:
As featured in TOM DIXON HOW TO BOOK - published for London Design Festival 2019.
Add 2 litres of water into a container, then
add 200ml of marbling paint concentrate solution.
Blend the liquid until fully dissolved.
Drop the marbling paint into the solution surface.
When the paint colour spreads evenly, drop other
paint colours one by one until you have the
desired colour combination.
Use a comb or rod to swirl your pattern.
Keep swirling till you get the patterns of your choice.
Lay your hand or object onto the solution surface
and leave for approximately 5 seconds.
Keep wet side upwards till your hand or object has air-dried.
