Bowl Stack Linocut - blue


Original Linocut - Bowl Stack

This stack of nine blue breakfast bowls was inspired by my breakfast bowls and those of a fellow artist, and during lockdown it took on a special meaning of the many large gatherings and extended family meals that we missed. 

2 layer multiblock print, handprinted.

Printed on smooth, off-white Kent printmaking paper. Size of paper: 21 x 15 cm (A5), smooth cut edges.

Size of printed image: 14 cm x 9 cm.

This is an edition of 15 prints in this pale blue / cornflower blue colourway. There will be subtle variations between each print such as the way the colours blend or the way the ink spreads on the paper, with lighter and darker areas within each shade of blue.

Linocuts prints are made by carving a design into traditional linoleum plates which are then inked up and printed in my two Victorian printing presses. All the areas which have been carved away will not print onto the paper, therefore leaving the paper white. Single-colour linocuts are very striking and bold. It is also possible to create multiblock prints with several overlapping plates, or reduction prints where the same plate is gradually carved away as the layers are printed.
