DESCRIPTION

Blue Jug is a reduction linocut and is part of an on going series of prints of native flowers in jugs. I have used the shape and some of the design elements from a Spode jug that I bought several years ago.
The colour linocuts I make are reduction prints, 2 blocks are used for all the colours and more of the block is carved away after each colour has been printed.
I use transparent ink called extender with small amounts of coloured ink mixed in. This means that the colours are built up from each other as each layer is added.
The inks I use are oil-based and each colour has to be completely dry before the next colour is printed. Most of my prints have 10 or more colours in and take around 2 months to make.
