For the last year or so I have had the loan of a beautiful American Conrad press. Unfortunately I have to return it soon, so have been having a stint on printmaking. I had forgotten how much I enjoy it...so instant to explore and play with. Clay is such an exercise in patience...waiting for drying and firing and glazing and firing....months can go by while you wait to see if your ideas work out. I love working with clay BUT the frenzy that can be had with printmaking is like a caffeine rush...Here are a couple of new 'raw' dry points. I call them 'raw', because I always add to the print....collage, paint, sewing. Over summer I am working on stock piling prints for re working during for the year ahead.
This one is called 'Girl with a bun.'
