This limited edition print, Hunting Oscillation, was printed with a strip of paper dyed with clay from the Coromandel. The clay was dug, dried, hammered, ground to a powder, then mixed with water to form a dye bath. The linocut plate was rolled with black ink and printed on top of the dyed paper.
After drying, the print was run through the press a second time, to adhere the translucent Thai kozo to Italian Fabriano paper, using the chine collé method. The print was then embossed with the Driving Creek Pottery logo designed by Barry Brickell, signed, titled and numbered, most with the designation ‘1/1’ showing that no two prints are identical, though many of the same elements may be present. Instead of printing editions, I make distinct prints from my plates, with different inking processes or chine collé applied.
