I had actually printed the watery backgrounds 2 or 3 years ago. At that point, I think I had run out of ideas so I put the partially completed sheets away. Of course, I would keep on coming across them in the studio and I would shuffle through them and wonder what the heck I ever thought I was going to do with them.
Now that they are finished it seems obvious what I should have done with them ... hindsight is everything they say it is.

When I took my relief printing course, which got me started in all of this, we did a lot of collographs. I've always enjoyed the textures and variations that can be achieved with this technique. As I do not have a press I print these as relief blocks, not intaglio.
This print is my interpretation of a Carstens Ankara West German pottery art vase with a raised geometric pattern.
