An insight into my creative practice.
Anonymous asked: Hello there. I really love your prints and was wondering what type of wood do you use?
Thank you! I’m currently engraving on lemonwood (named because of its colour, not because it is the wood of the lemon tree. It’s scientific name is Calycophyllum Candidissimum and I believe it is of South American origin) It is much easier to engrave than the traditional boxwood, but it still holds the fine lines I want, which can be sometimes lost on a softer wood such as Pear wood. The best maker of blocks is Chris Daunt, http://www.chrisdaunt.com. I hope that helps.
We were in the Echo this Saturday, yay!! Thank you so much to everyone who helped out with and was involved in this project. You can see all the other guys awesome work at http://www.fingerprintclub.co.uk

Awesome stone carving that exhibits the same subtle tones achievable in a wood engraving, just beautiful! Found on Mary Alice Amidon’s blog.http://maryaliceamidon.blogspot.co.uk
