Douglas Fir (Detail)
The Douglas Fir round comes from Grizedale Forest in the Lake District, and was taken from a tree which fell in 2018. It's 95 years old, almost as old as Forestry England which celebrates it's 100 th year in 2019.
This piece of wood was sanded, burned, wire brushed, and then inked.
The wood isn't level enough to be put through the press so this image is hand burnished using a bone folder. Its a slow, careful process as every millimetre of the paper has to be pressed onto the wood.
But so worth it!
Printed by hand onto Fabriano Unica handmade paper 50% cotton content 250gsm.
The prints are part of an open edition, and signed. They are available as seen without a mount.
The print dimensions are: 7.5 cm x 40.5 cm
The paper dimensions are: 19 cm x 56 cm
They are posted flat and carefully backed with card and wrapped.
