'Globe Artichokes' Hand-pressed Drypoint Print, Edition of 18

from 65.00

Welcome to my 'Globe Artichokes'.

These are handmade drypoint prints, made by me on my press.  Each are signed, dated by year and numbered in pencil.  This print also comes with a certificate of authenticity too.

I really enjoyed making these prints, I like the blue tint particularly.

'Globe Artichokes can be delivered mounted and wrapped, or framed in these simple white frames which have a perspex cover, making them great to send.  

 

 

About Drypoint Printmaking:

This technique of ‘Drypoint Printmaking’ was first used in the 15th Century and one used during the pivotal Art Movements of the 20th Century.

The technique is to draw directly onto a piece of zinc using scratch pens.  This creates a ‘burr’ or groove in the metal plate.  Ink is then applied onto the plate and into the burrs until the Artist is happy (this part is a little like painting directly onto the plate).  Before the ink dries, the metal place is laid face up on the press, ready to have prepared, dampened papers laid on top of it.  More tissue sheets are added and the press blankets are placed on top and then it goes under the roller, in my case twice.

Unpeeling the print from the metal plate is the most exciting thing ever.  Once happy with the print (there are generally 3 made for each print that leaves my studio) it is placed under heavy boards for a good 3 days to flatten the paper.
