“Places to Call Home”
Block: Cherry, Walnut, Cedar
Paper: Rives Heavyweight
These three icons are the municipal flags of three cities in Japan that have special importance to me: Matsumoto, Uji, and Funabashi. The cutting was an experiment for me; the three icons were cut from 1/16" planks of three kinds of wood using a laser cutter, almost like stencils. I then glued them onto a Shina backing and printed them by hand with a baren. It was a fun experiment, though I'm not sure I'd use that technique again.
