About Sponthanaeity

Sales 51
On Etsy since 2016

It Started With A Book

Sponthanaeity came about while I was doing my Honours project. I wanted a creative outlet from writing my thesis and already had years of fine arts studies to draw on (no pun intended), so I began creating collages and sculptural pieces from damaged books.
Next came the literary prints, my celebration of a handful of much loved classic novels I return to again and again on my bookshelf.
Then, while I had always loved drawing and illustrating, it took the longest time to build up the confidence to turn my watercolours into prints. Even though it can still feel a bit scary, I'm glad I did, and that's really when the Etsy shop started too.

The stall name is a combination of my name, Hanae, and the word spontaneity, and I'll often attribute this simultaneously terrible and brilliant portmanteau to my Creative Writing degree.
So why Sponthanaeity? Well, thanks to my thirst to develop new ideas and techniques and work with different mediums, my work is always evolving. I may be focusing on collages one year, and painting miniatures on brooches the next! While my mediums may change, I like to think the constants in my work are the quality, ideas, and a love of literature, art, collectables, and pop culture.
What's next? At the moment I'm passionate about intricate hand-painted brooches, lino printing, and developing new work to incorporate my writing.

Thank you for taking the time to read about my work - I hope you find something you like!

Frequently asked questions
Care instructions

Prints, paintings, and textiles are best kept out of direct sunlight, away from moisture, and should always be handled with clean hands when taken out of any packaging.

I use acid-free paper and high quality inks for my relief prints, ensuring longevity to the work. Your prints have been sent in a red-cyclable plastic sleeve to prevent the piece getting wet in transit, and with rigid board to prevent bending.

When framing your prints, consider the difference glass or plastic fronted frames will make, and ensure your hook/nail is securely placed.

What is a relief print?

A relief print is a form of printmaking (including woodcut, letterpress, linocut, and stamping) where ink is applied to the surface of a block, and then transferred onto another surface using pressure (applied by hand or a from of manually operated press).

My relief prints are all designed and carved by me into lino, and hand printed using the 'spoon method' onto paper. I use smooth European hot-pressed acid-free paper or Japanese Hosho paper for my designs.

Prints may either be open edition (meaning there may be unlimited prints pulled of that design while the block lasts), or limited edition (meaning a finite number of a design or colour variation will be printed). A limited run of prints will have a number visible, such as 3/50.
