There are six prints in his series of small steel plate etchings titled All in, Rougette, Inside Bet, Bonus, Odds, and Heat. They are printed on BFK and 17 1/2'' x 20'' and $950 a piece.
David created three large steel plate etchings titled High Roller, Aggregate, and Probability. They are 27''x 32 3/4'' and $2100 each.
David and Sue worked tirelessly together on three multi-copperplate aquatint etchings titled Lightrap Yellow, Lightrap Red, and Lightrap Emerald. The prints are based on three glass sculptures of David's shapes. The light and volume that these prints capture is striking, and was carefully created by step-etching and lots of steelwool sanding. They are printed on 27'' x 32 3/4'' paper and are $2200 each.
David made six solar plate etchings, three have color tone using chine colle and three are printed in black and white. They are titled All or Nothing, Blind Bet, and Hold Em, printed on 27'' x 32 3/4'' BFK paper and are $2000 for the color prints and $1800 for the black and white editions.
Please visit our website to view all of David's amazing prints! We all worked so hard and couldn't be more thrilled about the pieces that came out of this collaboration. :)
Christie was the chine colle master for this project! Chine colle literally means Chinese collage. Whenever a printer glues one paper to another using the press it is called "chine colle." We used colored gampishi paper (made in Japan from willow bark) to create the colored tone on this image, which ironically mimics the solar plate color.

These plates are in the process of being etched in acid. Everything that is painted black (called asphaltum) acts as a resist to the acid (meaning that area will not hold tone when wiped with ink). The blue paint is acting as another layer of aquatint to create more depth in the image.
Always thinking about ways to make it perfect!
