Lobster with diamonds and pearls: original linocut
I had a sudden inspiration for this print, and that inspiration was ✴🦐GLAMOUR🦐✴ LOBSTER!
I don't know where it came from but it turned into this print!
It reminded me of my visit to the amazing National Lobster Hatchery in Cornwall. If you've not been, I highly recommend a visit. It's a unique marine conservation and education charity. You can visit and see all of the beautiful little baby lobsters bring raised!
It's astonishing but a female lobster carries around 20,000 eggs - only ONE of which is expected to survive in the wild! You can see why they need help in the face of over fishing, climate change and pollution.
When we visited we adopted two lobsters which we got to name - and track! They were released near Falmouth in June - we'll have to visit the beach 🌊☀️ .
This dark blue run of 'Glamour Lobster' is a limited edition of 12.
This print is unframed.
The design is hand drawn directly onto a lino block, which is carved away using a gouge. The lino block is then inked, and printed in relief. Multi-colour prints are composed by transposing multiple blocks.
This is an original work of art, not a reproduction. The print is handmade, so colours may vary to what you can see on screen and prints will vary from each other.
The actual print is approximately A4 size, and signed in pencil by the artist. Paper varies in exact size as it may have been hand cut.
