“Shoji Lanterns”

Block: Shina plywood

Black oil-based ink woodcut on Hosho paper with chine colle using tissue paper and a little pastel rubbed into the light cast by the lanterns printed by hand with a baren. I didn't carve the light cast by the lanterns i just wiped those areas with a rag.
These are the solar shoji lanters that hang in my garden, a gift from my mom:) I love looking out at them from my window at night
