Ocean Jasper 5 Color Reduction Print

42.00

Inspired by the naturally occurring geological forms found in ocean jasper, this reduction print is a limited edition of 16. The reduction printing process requires the same block to be carved, re-carved, and printed on the same piece of paper to create layers of color that form the final design. More of the block is carved away before the next color is printed, creating a difficult but fun technical challenge. A beautiful gold ink was the last layer printed giving a metallic accent to the range of aqua blues used in the print.

- Printed by hand on Rives BFK 250 gsm paper from a single linoleum block in my home studio
- Five colors are layered including a metallic gold ink to create the effect of orbicular jasper
- Every block is lovingly designed and carved by hand for each edition of prints
- Colors are custom mixed from oil-based inks
- This print is on 9 x 11.2 inch paper, image size is approximately 7.5 x 10
- Each print is signed, and limited editions are numbered

Due to the hand-made nature of these prints and the nature of block printing, minor variations between prints are common
