Woodcuts and Wood Engraving

Worked on wood

Printing with a wooden matrix is totally different from working with metal. Wood has a certain softness and warmth to it. I use Finnish birch, pear, applewood, Japanese plywood or maple depending on the way I want to grind my work. When engraving hard wood like apple, the touch of the sharp stencil cutting the drawing in to the surface, is very satisfying… I just love it!
