I use copper plates for the intaglio prints, wood for the relief prints, and silkscreen for the serigraph prints. Often I mix the mediums to create layers of imagrey.
To the right is a photo of my copper plate intaglio in process on the press bed. Using a multi-stage process of creating a variety of shades, the finished plate is coated with ink, covered with a heavy weight paper that has been soaked in water, then ran through the press. The pressure of the roller pushed the paper surface into the plate - transferring the ink onto the paper. The plate can be wiped clean and the whole process can be repeated to create an edition of prints.
Prices range from $50 to $200 - contact me for details.
