Thank you for your interest...and Greetings from the Heart of the
The images for this company come from
making a relief print of objects found in Nature; fish, shells, plants,
feathers, etc. Gyotaku is the Japanese name for
"fish rubbing", an honored art form over 150 years old. As
to other styles of nature printing, there are as
many forms as there are practitioners. Prints can even be made from
flowers, bark, rocks and cobwebs. In fact, leaf prints have
been found dating back to the 1300's. Benjamin Franklin even used the
plaster cast of a leaf when printing currency for the new Colonies.
Imagine all the possibilities -- the endless shapes, textures, and
even the forces of Nature. I sometimes have trouble imagining it all!
