A New Lino Cut

Ordinarily I do lino cuts to use as book covers or Christmas cards. But I was struck by one of my own photos of the Port of Osaka, cracking plant and all and decided to turn it into a lino cut.

A black and white version of the original.
This is the first state of Port of Osaka I. The second one completed this morning is very different because I have printed it in various colours. I am sufficiently pleased with it to have printed 12 off on decent paper but they are at the printshop in a drying rack. I cannot afford to smudge them.

I am sufficiently chuffed to take another one of my photos of the port and use that next.

Cropped and inverted version for tracing. In three weeks it will be Port of Osaka II. And I can see at least another three in the pipeline.

About Me

I am weaver and - -. I dye my yarns with acid dyes, I paint my warps, put fabric collages and stencils on my weaving. I have three looms, a 12 inch wide, 12 shaft Meyer for demos and courses, a 30 inch Louet Kombo which is nominally portable but has a stand, two extra beams and a home-made device containing a fan reed. And last a 32 shaft Louet Megado which is computer controlled, has a sectional warp and a second warp beam and I am the proud owner of an AVL warping wheel which I love to bits and started by drilling holes in. I inserted a device for putting a cross in. I have just acquired an inkle loom and had a lesson from an expert so I can watch TV and weave at the same time. I am interested in weaving with silk mostly 60/2 although I do quite a bit with 90/2 silk. I also count myself as a bookbinder with a special interest in Coptic binding.
