The Woodcut Process
"Each of my print editions begins as a sketch transferred onto a piece of hardwood which I then carve in relief using a combination of knives and gouges. Although I do not make Japanese-style prints, my process of making woodcuts is informed by Japanese methods where a bevelled knife is used to do most of the cutting and gouges with different curvatures are used to remove the non-image area. Each impression is hand-printed by burnishing (or rubbing) the back of the paper with a bamboo spoon after the block has been inked." - Graham Blair
