Nicki’s First Print

April 4, 2012

A bit of a slow start today. We finally arrived at the studio at around noon.

However, Nicki made her first print today – her first print ever, that is! It is a dry point on recycled aluminum. Unfortunately, the paper was pretty awful.

Here she is, with her work, Textures of Venice.

Ben and Jenny are going home tomorrow, so everybody at the studio had a lunch, cooked by Gianfranco, in their honour. Since Jenny is vegetarian, it was spaghetti con pomodori, with olives.
There was a glass of red wine, and Gianfranco’s good coffee afterwards.

Here is Ben with the woodcut blocks for his large format prints.

He struggled to get them into a tube to transport them back to England. Because of the weight of the paper and the tube, he is desperately hoping he can get them accepted as on board luggage on the plane.

On the way back to our apartment afterwards, we stopped in at an art and hardware store to find materials for the collagraphs we will be making. I made risotto with rocket and mushrooms for dinner, and we bought some delicious small cakes. A glass of prosecco, and an early night for us all.

    I love the woodblock prints. And the fact that Nicki used recycled aluminum is fantastic. I try as much as I can to incorporate reused and reclaimed materials in my printmaking.
    Nice site.
