Celebrate Spring with this unique Hedgerow print.
Hand printed on cotton paper, Spring Hedgerow is printed from a collagraph plate inked intaglio and relief with individually inked hedgerow plants and flowers used as the mono print element.

A collagraph is rather like printing from a collage and results in a heavily embossed print. This plate has been constructed with carefully cut card and texture pastes. It has been used to print a series of prints using different colours and different plant materials gathered from Devon Hedgerows.For this print the collagraph plate is inked in brown, green and blue etching ink then a blend of ochre and green ink was rolled across the surface. The plants was inked in bright greens and pinks prior to placing on the collagraph plate and passed through an etching press.

This is part of an ongoing project – much of the work is too large to be easily posted so I am only listing the small drypoint creatures and this Spring Hedgerow so far.

All my prints are printed by hand myself, although I also print for other artists in my role as master printmaker.

Image = 16.5cm x 25cm; approx 6 ½ inches x 9 7/8 inches
Paper size = 25.5cm x 33.3cm; approx 10 inches x 13 1/8 inches

The print is signed, titled and numbered in pencil. It is also embossed with a small version of my workshop's logo. The embosser is also made by myself.
1 / 1 means it’s a one of a kind.

See this shop section for other collagraph mono prints.

This artwork was conceived and created solely as an original fine art print. Unlike a gicleé print or any other computer print out, none of my prints are reproductions of a pre-existing painting or drawing .

I like to use top quality heavy weight paper this one is Somerset 100% cotton Velvet, 300gm. It is best not to roll up prints for posting, especially when the printing process results in a fair amount of embossing. I will therefore only ship my prints flat and protected with card.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me.
