Printing a Pou

My woodcut print
Zhou bronze jar (pou)

I had a good day of woodcut printing at Curwen Print Study Centre.

I was inspired by paintings combining print vessels with brushwork flowers – for example, Wu Changshuo, – so I created a print based on a Zhou bronze pou (jar).  I had fun printing various versions using press or baren, sometimes with background or masking, including the lighter second “ghost print.”
