This original goldfinch wood engraving has been created by printmaker Molly Lemon. Goldfinches are sweet little birds that can be found in most gardens in the UK. They are often seen on Molly's bird feeder enjoying sunflower seeds.
She engraved the design by hand onto an English boxwood round. She then inked it up using lightfast inks and printed it onto archival paper using her 150 year old Albion printing press. After each printing session more of the design was engraved away. There are 5 layers in total. This technique is a reduction technique.
There are 30 prints in this edition, each print may vary slightly due to their hand printed nature. Each print is numbered, titled, signed and dated on the front in pencil.
This print comes mounted in an untextured white mount. Frame and block pictured not included.
The size of the printed area is 6.8x7.5cm
External measurements of mount 15x15cm
