Ram Descending a Cliff Face
Wood Engraving
5x7 inches

Block: End-grain maple
Ink: Black
Paper: Stonehenge
Process: Engraving
Image: Chinese Lunar New Year of the Ram! I have a picture of Marcel Duchamp's Nude Descending a Staircase pinned to my wall and always wanted to pay tribute. Apologies to the master!

Process: Woodcuts and wood engravings 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.

All my woodcuts are made in limited editions, signed and numbered in pencil.
