This maritime block print is inspired by the traditional Japanese wave (Seigaiha) pattern. It is block printed by hand using five different hand-carved stamps.
Dimensions: Cardboard size = 15x21 cm approx. (DIN A5, 5.9x8.3 inch approx.); printed area = cardboard size (printed right to the edge)
Paper: white 1090 gsm mount board, 1.5 mm thick (acid free, without optical brightness additives, optimum age resistance)
Ink: vibrant fade resistant pigment inks.
Each print is handmade and unique. Due to the nature of the block printing process (with > 25 individual impressions of the stamps, all carefully positioned and printed one after the other by hand) there might be slight variations from the prints pictured here. These variations make each of the prints unique and are completely natural to the hand printing process. As the mount board is cut by hand, very slight variations in size may appear.
All prints are signed on the back.
These prints are part of an open edition.
Sold unframed. This listing is for one block print. Stamps and carving tools not included. The color may differ slightly from the original color due to different monitor settings.
For shipping, the print will be carefully packaged with sturdy cardboard backing and a strong cardboard envelope in order to prevent it from damage during the shipping process. Please note that I minimize the use of plastic in my packaging as much as possible.
