SkellyWeg & The Flower of Love

After looking at the work of M C Escher, Fiona at Mencap was inspired to make these two wonderful woodcut memento mori.

Carving into the smooth limewood was a challenge at first, getting the right angle, shifting weight & muscle, but by the final cut Fiona was nimble and expressive with the tools, even surprising herself.  She produced a small run of 4 prints each – SkellyWeg, and The Flower of Love! Now there’s a tale-in-the-making…

We’re hoping to run some woodcut printmaking courses in the New Year, so look out.
