This is a round of Yew from Hexhamshire Hardwoods, and it is a Northumberland Tree approximately 105 years old, it began growing in 1913.
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 and takes up to an hour as very millimetre of the paper has to be pressed onto the wood.
But so worth it!
