One World
Corian Engraving
17" x 11" inches
Edition 140

Block: Corian, (polysynthetic resin by Dupont)
Ink: Umber/Black
Paper: Kitakata

Process: Engraving. Working on Corian allows for infinite detail because the resin, unlike wood, will not crumble. Thus I am able to leave tiny dots and lines and they will withstand the pressure of the printing process.
Image: Printmakers exchange prints all the time, one of the advantages of doing multiple works of art. This was conceived for an exchange entitled War/Peace. I envisioned that only people can bring the world together...and perhaps also tear it apart; as usual I chose the view of the optimist.

Process: Woodcuts are made by drawing an image on a block of wood, usually cherry in my case, then carving out the negative spaces. After carving, what is left is a big "stamp" of the desired image. I roll ink with a roller over the woodcut, place a piece of handmade paper on the inked block, apply pressure and transfer the image on the paper.
