This limited edition print, Off Cut, was printed with black ink, wood ash and clay dug from the ground at Driving Creek Pottery. The clay was dried, hammered, ground to a powder, then fired to 900 degrees Celsius. This ceramic powder was added to a transparent ink base.
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.
