This botanical print celebrates the wonder of weeds.

Hand printed on cotton paper, Wonder Weed V is printed from a collagraph plate inked intaglio and relief with individually inked real wild plants used as the mono print elements. A collagraph is rather like printing from a collage and results in an embossed print.
The collagraph plate is inked in a warm red-brown etching ink then a soft yellow relief print ink was rolled across the surface. The uprooted grasses were inked in green and brown prior to placing on the collagraph plate. The whole ensemble was then passed through an etching press with damp paper.

The last photograph shows a similar print in a frame in my studio.

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

Plate = 15x15cm; approx 6inchesx 6inches – image extends beyond the plate size.
Paper size = 33x27cm; approx 12 ½ x1 ¾ inches

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

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 so 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.
