Large Yew - Red Series
By Shona Branigan
This Yew began life in 1822 and fell this year 2018 at Allen Banks, Northumberland. This piece of wood was sanded, burned, wire brushed, and then inked.
This image is hand burnished using a bone folder. Its a slow, careful process and takes up to an hour as very millimetre of the paper has to be pressed onto the wood. The paper takes on an intaglio feel and look so that as well as seeing the pattern, you see the hint of the 3 dimensional shape of the wood as well.
Printed by hand onto Heritage Rag paper, it is a 100% cotton, unbuffered, Fourdrinier made paper with a vellum surface. It has a full archival specification.
