Our new etching room is complete with a beautiful handmade aquatint box made by Matt, Bill, and Bob Rowe, a solar plate exposure unit, also handmade and designed by Sue and Matt, and a steel facing tank that Randy, Sue's husband, kindly dug out from six feet of snow in their backyard!
Everything is also covered in a fresh coat of paint, which throughly brightened up the space and made viewing prints on the walls more enjoyable.
This project with Ken Buhler has been so exciting for us because we finally get use all of our fun printmaking goodies and...ETCH some COPPER PLATES!
Ken has also been taking time to make watercolor monoprints, creating earthy and etherial drawings using his amazingly beautiful collection of stamps, stencils, and mark making:
Below are a few of the completed monoprints!
