My best nine of 2022
So these were actually all of my completed linocuts from 2022. Top left are the preserved bottle ovens of the Johnson's Sanitary Ware factory to the south of Hanley, top middle is Minkstone pottery's bottle oven in Longton / Normacot, top right is a 10cm square rendition of Caerphilly Castle which I made for this year's International Print Exchange . Middle row left is Dudson Museum's beautiful bottle in Hanley, centre is Fenton Roofscape with three flintkilns known locally as salt, pepper and vinegar, and right is St Bartholomew's Church, Blurton. The Wedgwood site linocuts at the bottom are massive departures for me, as they are both multiblock prints - I normally work in reduction, in other words, gradually cutting away at the same block for successive colours. Last but not least, St Bartholomew's again, as I used the same drawing again to make a Christmas card. I have a few works in progress, so these should be making themselves known soon!
