This hand made portfolio is home to my recent print series, ‘Field Notes’. It was inspired by recent travel to ancient sites in Turkey.
A three week intensive printmaking course with Master Printmaker, Alain Costaz, introduced me to intaglio. I combined this technique with mono print and collograph to produce six prints.
‘Assemblage: West Entrance’
‘In Situ: East Entrance’
‘Grave Goods and Grid’
‘Stone Excavation with Rope’
Prints measure 11″x15″ and are printed on German Etch paper.
The portfolio was constructed using unbleached recycled cardboard, bound with black cotton tape, and stitched using a heavy duty sewing machine with a rotational bobbin. The title label, ”Field Notes’, was typed on fine copper sheet. The closure is waxed unbleached cotton string with a carved bone bead.
