> Brad Teare (European woodcut tradition)

Brad I enjoyed your website and especially your woodcuts and the
engraving for "Women Who Run With Wolves" (a book I have read). Since
you say "European woodcut tradition", I am assuming you mean oil based
inks. The colors are rich and lovely.

Yes, I print with oil based inks and use a challenger proof press. I also have
several sets of movable type. So I think of my studio as in the European
tradition (although this is probably somewhat of a confusing term, since I use
lot of Asian techniques as well like counter proofing and lost block

Thanks for your comments!

I meant to type "lost key" printing. I don't know what "lost block" printing
would be (a piece of white paper I guess. Possibly a popular technique with

I have today collected three of my woodblock prints that I have had
professionally framed so that they can be exhibited in The Scone Art
Prize in New South Wales (Australia) in September. The three that I
have had framed are my Exchange #21 Haiku print "Fire, Fire", another
Calligraphed print much the same size I cut in Gothic or Old English
lettering which says "Some men have a den in their home while others
just growl all over the house!" is purely lettering with lines
left between the lettering and a border.... to simulate a cage!! Both
these were double mounted in the same paper colour as I used to print
on...Fabriano and Kozo. The frames are plain mottled gold and silver

I was so thrilled to see them, they looked so "professional" and I will
be proud to exhibit them in my birthplace.

The third print is a four or five colour print...have forgotten now of
Pomegranates (whole and cut) I printed for the Print Australia Nature
Mort....."Nature Mort - Off the Tree". This one has a single mount
with a pinky gold mottled frame. All frames are only about 2cm in
width, so not heavy looking. This one I am planning to put into our
Perth Royal Show in October.. the same section I entered last year on
the Woodcarvers Craft Section for "Any Article not catered for in this
section"! We'll see what happens this year!!! They will probably be
"stumped" again!!

But my advice to all is to have a print framed every now and then to
get a feeing of greater satisfaction that these ones have done for me!!

Happy carving,

Hello all,

Had some trouble with my subscription so I am re-joining the list from
my new email address...thanks Wanda R. for help on that.
Just wanted to say I keep finding more interesting parts of the site
here...The Woodblock Encyclopedia is a fascinating read,
as well as the puzzle project page, (wow!)
calendars, exchanges-
and I look forward to reading the digest and enjoy seeing work from so
many talented people. I'm slowly understanding some of the technical has taken a while to wrap my head around the registration and
color block process...but I'm hoping to participate in an exchange
soon. Below are 3 links to my "debut" print, as well as the block and
the drawing, (perhaps I want to show it off, though it's not too good,
I think)... still I am eager to continue, so please comment and
critique if anyone wants. Thanks !
