Artwork description:

Original wood engraving. A view of the village of Cwmparc, Rhondda, based on a 1950s photograph. The view shows the Parc and Dare collieries, with the Bwlch-y-Clawdd Road in the foreground. Whilst there is little sign of the pits today, the long trains of terraced housing remain an iconic sight in the Valleys of south Wales. In the background are ominous, towering coal tips, framed by the majestic glacial corries of Craig-fawr and Craig-fach.

This print is mounted, framed and glazed. Unframed prints from the edition are also available via Artfinder.

Wood engraving is a form of fine art printmaking. The artist uses specialised tools to create the image in relief (and reverse) on the end grain of a block of hardwood - usually boxwood - by removing the 'white' parts of the image. This technique is painstaking and highly technical, and allows for the creation of exquisitely detailed works. Rebecca's wood engravings have been exhibited in the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, with the Society of Wood Engravers, and in galleries across the world from Japan to the USA.

Materials used:

Wood engraving, ink on paper
