Sparrow and roses botanical wreath original lino print
A handmade lino block print inspired by the beautiful sparrow. I love to watch the antics of the flocks of these little birds that live in our neighbourhood.
They are cheeky and intelligent, with complex social relationships.
This print is very personal, as this year I had the pleasure of handraising an abandoned baby sparrow. He fell into our attic, and into our hearts! Little Hercule Sparrow grew so quickly - we watched him learn to hop about, peck at seed and fly. It was a bittersweet moment to see him fly back to the wild, but a proud one!
This print has been produced in a limited run of 10.
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 A3 size, signed in pencil by the artist. Paper varies in exact size as it may have been hand cut.
A3 prints will be shipped in a cello bag inside a board backed envelope.
