'Scallop Shell' is a limited run of just 16 hand carved and hand printed linocut prints. This is print number 3.
Each print is printed on to quality Japanese white printing paper using high quality oil based black ink.
Due to the nature of the craft, each print is slightly different, which creates a truly unique piece of art.
Not only one of my favourite shellfish to eat, the shells are also beautiful, and while usually thrown out after they've been eaten I wanted to appreciate their beauty.
The ink gives the print texture. Run your hand across it and feel each section protrude from the paper. I love how oil based relief ink allows for such texture and depth.
