This beautiful 'Fractured Perfection' print is a handprinted collagraph created using a plate detailed with crafted textures, mirroring the raku technique of ceramicists. I like the contrast between the matt black ink and the lustre of the gold lines. The work is inspired by Kintsugi, the Japanese art of mending broken pottery with lacquer and powdered gold. It celebrates the beauty of imperfection by emphasizing fractures instead of hiding them.
The Finer Details
This is an original collagraph print (it is not a digitally reproduced print).
H29.7 x W21 cm
How Its Made
This monoprint was created using a unique printmaking technique, Monoprints are one-of-a-kind images, where ink is applied to a surface, then transferred to paper. I created this one using my Gunning press. Each print is distinct and cannot be replicated exactly. If you'd like to learn more about the creation of collagraph prints in general, read my related blog post So... What is a collagraph print...?
All prints come unframed, wrapped in compostable cellophane with a recycled card backing. Each print is individually hand signed, embossed with my logo and numbered.
