Materials: Linoldruck Aqua Ink, Winsor Newton Paper 220gsm, Water
Height: 6 inches
Width: 6 inches
This original hand pressed linocut print is a capriccio - an imaginary landscape of the industrial Black Country as it was in days gone by. I have created this landscape by making an imaginary scene based on a group of photographs of the industrial area known as the Black Country as it was in the last century, at that time there was still agricultural land in the area and farmers worked side-by-side with the industrial workers, something which I find fascinating. It is sad to me that the agricultural land was soon gobbled up by industry, and now there is little or no sign of it ever having existed, apart from a few street names and old photographs of the area.
I have given this print the title 'A Crowded Wilderness' as this seems to sum up the landscape for me - despite the industry, the animals, the people, there was still space for nature to exist between the worlds and despite the smoke clouds billowing overhead.
I pressed this print at home using the back of a spoon and a bamboo baren in 12 pressings.
This is the 1st of an edition of 5 prints. As this is a reduction linocut print there will be no other original prints made from this plate, which was destroyed during the printing process.
This artwork is printed in Schmincke Aqua Linoldruck Linoprint Ink (Water Based) on Winsor & Newton Fine Grain Paper (220gsm).
The print measures approx 6 inches x 6 inches and the paper has been trimmed to approx. 8 inches x 11 inches.
The print will come to you unmounted and unframed.
I will mail it out to you in a cellophane packet and wrapped in tissue paper. I will also enclose a small signed Certificate of Authenticity. I always send my artwork in a board backed envelope with an insert of thin cardboard (cut down from a recycled source) to protect the front of the print.
I will send the print out to you via 1st class Royal Mail Signed For Delivery or International Tracked/Signed For if sending overseas. Any other items purchased at the same time as this one will be sent free of charge in the same package.
Thank you for looking at my artwork.

Absolutely love this piece. The essence of the place was wonderfully captured, and it is certainly one of my favourites in my collection. Thank you!
I ordered three of Kay beautiful prints to be displayed together as a series. They are absolutely lovely! Delivery was quick, UK to Texas! Thank you Kay!
Absolutely lovely and super quick delivery. This is an anniversary gift for my fiance who asked me to marry him looking at the Cuillins Mountains. This is a very special gift, it took a while to find a beautiful piece to remember Skye with. Thank you!
Fantastic piece of artwork and great customer service. The little hand-written note and packaging are such a delight and show how much care and attention Kay goes into producing and packaging her work. A pleasure to deal with. Will definitely be buying more!
