Several people have expressed interest in my woodblocks lately. Besides being the raw material for my prints, they are little objects in and of themselves- I’ve been carving on different types of wood, and getting a feel for the different softnesses and grains. The maple that was left over from my table-building project is super easy to carve, and allows me to have a greater control over the marks left behind. I’m in the process of developing the blocks themselves into art (uh- “art”)… finished pieces. These are about 3×4″, on soft maple, and I’m planning to frame them after taking a few impressions.
