Not a brilliant photo, but you can get the idea. Next we had to print it.
|The cardboard inked.|
This is one of the ones I didn't submit. Next we had to do a textured print which for me required 2 plates.
This is covered with wire, the idea being to give a grid like background.
The objects stuck on the plate were tiles, garlic top, squashed sardine tin and rope.
The end result is not brilliant but I enjoyed it. The print teacher in Castlemaine was taught by Tim Jones who is a very highly regarded print maker and sculptor near here. We went to his studio during the DMROS Open Studio weekend.His work is beautiful. DMROP stands for Daylesford and Macedon Ranges Open Studio group and there are some amazing artists involved. I have finally finished year 4 of course I am doing and I am looking forward to getting back to my tapestry as I have done nothing since finishing the large tapestry.
