The fennel outside my studio is beautiful to see during the daytime, but at night when lit by moonlight, it becomes even more sculptural. The seed head and stems in the print are gathered and then pressed, before I ink by hand and print at my home studio. I’ve made use of mica powers to create subtle glimmers of copper to enhance the wonderful tones of the image.

 

Printed on Somerset paper with black and charcoal inks, handprinted using safe wash/ soya based inks.

 

This is a mono print, which means it is a one-off Image.

 

This is an original intaglio print (it is not a digitally reproduced print).

 

Image size: 23 x 14.8cm

Paper size: 35 x 26cm

 

My intaglio print technique starts when ink is carefully applied by hand to the plate (in this case the pressed botanical). After placing the element on the Gunning bed and during the process of running the plate under the print roller, it is pressed into damp paper, transferring the ink, and creating a debossed impression of the plant.

 

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.
