Neist Point-1 - Collagraph

Designed and hand made by Denise Huddleston, on the Isle of Skye.
This is a unique, contemporary, signed, original artwork.

Neist Point, a spectacular spot with high cliffs on the far north west coast of Skye, is a magnet for nesting seabirds.

Size: mounted, unframed is 31cm x 31cm (12" x 12")
framed 35cm x 35cm
actual artwork is approx 15cm x 15cm

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 will often create a silkscreen to overprint any fine detail.

The artwork is available mounted and backed or professionally framed in black.
The mounting materials are the highest quality available
