Process/inspiration: World War Two Restaurant Scene is a print made from a hand carved linoleum called a linocut. This linocut is hand carved by me, Mary, and hand printed on Kozo Mulberry paper with permanent Oil based ink. This print I made is dedicated to my Grandfather that passed away last month. He was very proud of his service in the U.S. Navy. You can read more about it here.
This Edition is of 24. Each Print purchased will be numbered and signed under the image.
Handmade: In order to achieve the beautiful print I first need to draw the image onto a sheet of linoleum or a wood block. Then I carve away parts of the linoleum in order to leave a negative image of the print. Ink is then rolled onto the surface of the linoleum and paper is applied with pressure using a small kitchen spoon or an etching press. In result, there is a slightly imprinted print on the paper.
The paper used is Acid free and all prints are printed with permanent Ink.
All items are designed, hand carved, and hand printed by the Artist.
Each Print is sold separately and does not include the original linoleum block pictured (it is simply shown on the photo to demonstrate the process when making the print).
Shipping: All prints will be shipped with the utmost care. They will be sent in a rigid mailer to ensure the art is not bent while traveling. Tracking will be included in the United States to ensure delivery. Please allow extra time for delivery in other countries in some cases can take up to 8 weeks.
