Each hand printed image is numbered and signed by the Artist.
These are linocut prints. This means that each image is carved into linoleum using tiny u shaped gouges. The knives used to carve with come from Japan. They’re tiny, hand-forged u-shaped gauges. Once the carving is complete, the linoleum plate is inked using a roller called a brayer. What you see when you look at a print is the inked linoleum that remained after carving. What reads as white was all carved away from the plate. The ink is an eco-friendly soy based printmaking ink. Once the plate is inked, the paper and plate are carefully run through a hand turned etching press, transferring the image from the plate to the paper. This is a painstaking process and doesn’t work every time.
