Original Art Woodcut Print Bambino Baby Rat Mouse in Hand Wood Engraving Silver
Block is maple
Ink is graphite oil based
4"x6" image slightly larger paper
Limited edition of 100
I made this for a friend that had a baby a while back. I'm sure the baby has grown as has the rat. This 2008 is the year of the rat in Chinese Lunar New Year so I thought I would offer the remainder of the edition.
The ink was graphite, which makes the wood engraving look like a pencil drawing, quite delicate.
MATTING OR FRAMING
Many collectors often prefer works on paper unmatted and unframed. You will receive your new artwork unmatted/unframed, in an acid-free clear bag well protected against dust and fingerprints and suitable for long-term storage.
Our studio is fully equipped to professionally mat and frame works on paper. If you would prefer to receive your artwork matted, ready to frame, or framed, ready to hang, please choose that option at the time of purchase.
All materials used in matting and framing are acid-free archival quality.
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.
All my woodcuts are made in limited editions, signed and numbered in pencil. Signed Numbered Wood engraving Limited edition Animals Traditional 12 to 36 in
