Steam Dragon By @ingprinter
Reduction linoprint on A4 sized Somerset Satin (white) 300gsm paper in Cranfield Caligo safe wash inks by Ingrid Nilsen @ingprintmaker
I have always loved Japanese woodblock prints, and their often playful use of imagery. The idea of a dragon escaping from the pattern on china is something I have explored in different ways; this time it has been lurking in the teapot waiting to emerge with the steam. This is a reduction print, so the block is gradually carved away during the process meaning that only a very small edition is made.
