Pot O'Gold
Woodcut
22" x 30"
Edition 50

Block: Cherry (3)
Ink: Oil Based Rembrandt Copper/Gold/Process Yellow/Black
Paper: Magnani Incisioni
Process: Used deep embossing to add to the image without taking away the "clean" effect of the vessel series.
Image: Sometimes what we want is not what we get. Alternatively, living in our different worlds (vessels) makes us both desire and shun other worlds; rejecting the restrictive vessel might be the best approach to happiness. The analogy of search for the elusive pot of gold illustrates both these points, I thought.

The vessel series was all about the private worlds that we all build around us with things that are comfortable to us and perhaps alien to others.


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.
