Designed and hand made by Denise Huddleston, on the Isle of Skye.
This is a contemporary, signed, original artwork in a Varied Edition of only 2.
The image is hand printed from a hand made collagraph plate.
I create my plates by engraving into thin wooden board. I then glue recycled materials to the board and form textures with plaster and carborundum. Once the plate is thoroughly dry, a coat of shellac or varnish is used to seal it. The following day, my collagraph plate is ready to print from.
Only a few images can be produced from each plate, before it degrades.
The image was carefully inked and printed in two stages onto Somerset Velvet printmaking paper using my etching press.
A few days later . . once the inks had dried . . I created a silkscreen and printed the birds in black water based inks.
The artwork is available mounted and backed or professionally framed in black or white.
