    Victorian Mizpah Pheasant Rock Crystal Brooch

    Often the minute details 'make' a piece as much as the overall design. This is one of those pieces. The brooch is lovely, dating from the late Victorian period and featuring a dome of rock crystal reverse intaglio carved with an elegant pheasant - incredible detail, and beautifully executed. The border features hand engraved thistle motifs, suggesting it's likely Scottish in origin (like myself), but the best part is a tiny pair of details to the back of the border... the word MIZPAH and a double heart pierced by one of Cupid's arrows. It was certainly exchanged as a love token, and likely a secret one at that on account of the hidden romantic sentiments, but further than this speculation the specifics of its commission and exchange are lost to the mists of time...

    Vineblossom Intaglio chine-collé monoprint on handmade paper 5x7" 2021

    This is one of the earlier plates I carved after I got my little press and could start printmaking at home. It's been through a lot of experiments--finding the right paper to get the cleanest lines was a journey in itself. Handmade pulls up the best, but took some work to keep from disintegrating without pulling dry; Arches hot-press watercolour is a good runner-up with less labour.

    But I think on this particular batch of paper, with the chine-collé flowers, it's really at its best and final form. I'm ready to let this one retire, I think. There's a few other monoprint experiments I have from the fall that came out very nicely, but it's time to carve some fresh plates.

    In the depths beyond reach - a frogs playful tale by Patricia Mc Carthy~ (poetry).

    In the depths beyond reach

    One may see it's webbed feet,

    And it's protruding eyes

    Gaze across the misty isles,

    On the search for a snail,

    Or a slug for a treat.

    This carnivorous creature sets out a croak of delight,

    When it spots a mound of earthworms,

    Rather close in sight.

    With a hop and a leap,

    The prey is swept off its own feet,

    And with a munch and a crunch this frog has had his own lunch.

    I decided to create this poem after finishing my experimental drawing of a hunched frog posed sitting down on a coffee cup I got in college. I wanted to use various media and media to challenge myself in my artwork and experiment with various processes and varieties of art forms and techniques. I used the drawing technique of observing from reality/ using a frog mould as my model for this artwork. This poem explores animals playing with food (frog playing with earthworms). As I live near a forest it is common to see frogs hopping and leaping out of the ponds of marshy water typically when it’s raining, I got to learn more about my surroundings and demonstrate other various aspects of play demonstrated by frogs such as: locomotor play (hopping and jumping) as depicted in the illustrations below🐸✨🌟

    I took inspiration from a little froggy visitor in my garden and also from a frog statue my nanny gave to my family a few years ago!

    Monday seminar focus: Donald Teskey - Fractured shoreline IV PIECE

    Born in Co. Limerick in 1956, Donald Teskey graduated from Limerick College of Art & Design with a diploma in Fine Art in 1978.

    Since 1992 he has crafted out a substantial body of work as a painter of the landscape and more recently the ruggedness of the western seaboard.

    Teskey’s works interpret the connection between prehistory and the land and man’s emergence from the sea.

    For Teskey much of the motivation to capture the sense of what he sees is the search to represent the illusory.

    He finds that gaining a sense of place improves your painting style, and I took inspiration from this quote as I decided to explore my own surroundings in nature and sketch from reality.

    He uses Carborundum & Intaglio - as his media which is a printmaking format

    Intaglio process:

    Depressions are engraved or etched into a flat printing plate. Likely not to scale: grooves can be less than a millimetre wide.

    The plate is covered in ink.

    The ink is wiped off the surface of the plate, but remains in the grooves.

    Paper is placed on the plate and compressed, such as by a heavy roller.

    The paper is removed, and the ink has been transferred from the plate to the paper.

    Intaglio is the family of printing and printmaking techniques in which the image is incised into a surface and the incised line or sunken area holds the ink.[2] It is the direct opposite of a relief print where the parts of the matrix that make the image stand above the main surface.

    Carborundum mezzotint:

    a printmaking technique in which the image is created by adding light passages to a dark field.

    I used markers as my form of media for my frog drawing, however I have experimented with the printing process as seen in my earlier post of my printed fox.

    It’s Fine Press Friday!

    This week we bring you The Bottom of the Harbor, by the The New Yorker writer Joseph Mitchell, with photos by by celebrated American photographer Berenice Abbott, printed by Wild Carrot Letterpress on a paper made at Cartiere Enrico Magnini, and published in 1991 by the Limited Editions Club in an edition of 250 copies signed by the author. The six stories that comprise the book were first published in the The New Yorker, and then first published as a collection by Little Brown in 1959. The collection has been recognized as Mitchell’s best and most “elegiac account of New York,” featuring his distinctive focus on the everyday underdog characters of New York City.

    Berenice Abbott spent her career documenting New York City as it underwent massive changes, particularly in the 1920s and 30s when millions were immigrating to the United States through Ellis Island. Abbott’s and Mitchell’s works are complementary as they both focused on often overlooked places and people, emphasizing the importance and beauty of the small things.

    The photographs are produced here in photogravure by American photogravure printmaker Jon Goodman. Photogravure allows a photographic image to be printed in intaglio. These images were produced using the original negatives taken by Abbott. The result is a rich velvety tonal image that is fully integrated into the paper though the extreme pressure used in the printing process.

    Goodman’s photogravure plates were printed by Sara Krohn and Wingate Studio on handmade paper. The text was set by Michael and Winifred Bixler in Monotype Bell. Our copy is a gift from our friends Megan Holbrook and Eric Vogel.

    Intaglio Printmaking Process Free Are Removed

    Relief A relief print, for example, a woodcut or linoleum cut, is rendered when the zones of the grid (plate or matrix) that are to display the printed picture are on the original surface the areas of the grid that are supposed to be ink-free are removed.Intaglio printmaking techniques work by incising into the surface of a plate (steel, copper etc.) with tools or with acid. The ink stays in the sunken area, leaving your desired pattern.There are three basic printmaking techniques: relief, intaglio, and planar. Printing involves wiping the plate with ink to force ink into the recesses of the plate, utilizing tarlatan to remove excess ink from the raised surface or upper An intaglio technique in printmaking refers to all printing and printmaking techniques that involve making indents or incisions into a plate or print surface which hold the ink when ink is applied to the surface and then wiped clean. Made by engraving into metal, some historians believe that intaglio evolved from goldsmiths’ practice of taking an impression of a design they engraved on an object onto paper (in order to keep a record of it).All intaglio processes are printed in the same format. Intaglio printmaking techniques emerged in Europe centuries after the invention of woodblock printing in Japan.

    The acid eats into the metal around the particles to produce a granular pattern of tiny indented rings. The plate is then immersed in an acid bath, just like etching. Finally a dampened paper is pressed against the plate.Aquatint is a printmaking technique that produces tonal effects by using acid to eat into the printing plate creating sunken areas which hold the inkFine particles of acid-resistant material, such as powdered rosin, are attached to a printing plate by heating. The surface is wiped clean so that the ink remains only in the incised areas.

    It is often used in combination with other intaglio techniques.Etching is a printmaking technique that uses chemical action to produce incised lines in a metal printing plate which then hold the applied ink and form the imageThe plate, traditionally copper but now usually zinc, is prepared with an acid-resistant ground. The technique was developed in France in the 1760s and became popular in Britain in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. Gradations of tone can be achieved by varying the length of time in the acid bath longer periods produce more deeply-bitten rings, which print darker areas of tone. The extent of the printed areas can be controlled by varnishing those parts of the plate to appear white in the final design.

    Since then many etching techniques have been developed, which are often used in conjunction with each other: soft-ground etching uses a non-drying resist or ground, to produce softer lines spit bite involves painting or splashing acid onto the plate open bite in which areas of the plate are exposed to acid with no resistance photo-etching (also called photogravure or heliogravure) is produced by coating the printing plate with a light-sensitive acid-resist ground and then exposing this to light to reproduce a photographic image. Sometimes ink may be left on the plate surface to provide a background tone.Etching was used for decorating metal from the fourteenth century but was probably not used for printmaking much before the early sixteenth century. The plate is then placed against the paper and passed through a printing press with great pressure to transfer the ink from the recessed lines. The resist is removed and ink applied to the sunken lines but wiped from the surface. Stronger acid and longer exposure produce more deeply bitten lines. The plate is then immersed in acid and the exposed metal is ‘bitten’, producing incised lines.

    However, it was not until about 1430 in Germany that engraved plates began to be used for making prints. The technique of engraving metal dates from classical antiquity as a method of decorating objects. The burin makes incisions into the metal at various angles and with varying pressure which dictates the quantity of ink the line can hold – hence variations in width and darkness when printed.

    Drypoint is often combined with other intaglio techniques, such as etching. Owing to the delicate nature of the burr, drypoint is usually made in small editions, stopping before the burr is crushed by the pressure of the intaglio press. When ink that has been applied to the plate is wiped off both the incised line and specifically the burr receive ink when the plate is wiped, giving the printed line a distinctive velvety look. The process of incising for drypoint creates a slightly raised ragged rough edge to the lines, known as the burr.

    In Italy, painter Andrea Mantegna, who had turned his hand to engraving, earned widespread acclaim for his clarity and boldness of image. By the 16th century, though, some names had become synonymous with fine line engraving. As Anthony Gross points out in his Etching, engraving, & intaglio printing, most were known to us by their work only, historians having invented names for them based on their prints – ‘Master of the Playing Cards’, ‘Master of the Garden of Love’ and ‘Master of Saint John the Baptist’. We are fortunate to know their names, since so few early engravers have been identified. It would be almost a century later, in 1562, when the first depiction, by Balthasar Jenichen, of an engraver at work on a copper printing plate appeared.

    Intaglio Printing Examples Manual Intaglio Printmaking

    London, Archetype Publications, 2012.Intaglio Printmaking. Stijnman, Adrianus, A history of engraving and etching techniques: Developments of manual intaglio printmaking processes, 1400-2000. Examples of intaglio printing are etching, drypoint, engraving, photogravure, heliogravure, aquatint, and mezzotint. Relief printing, such as the woodcut and the wood engraving, is done by applying ink to the high parts of a printing matrix intaglio uses the low parts instead.Intaglio printing is the direct opposite of relief printing because the incised areas are what is printed rather than the raised areas. As both artist and engraver, he could connect more directly with his audience, and his books, with their co-existent and cohesive images and text, facilitated a transfer knowledge which was particularly meaningful – the kind arguably obtained only where author and illustrator were one and the same.Intaglio comes from the Italian intagliere, to cut in or carve, and describes the class of printing that uses grooves in metal to hold the printing ink. The talent of these early print engravers was not lost on 17th and 18th century successors such as William Hogarth and William Blake, the latter of whom really renewed the art of bookmaking and printing by etching and engraving his own illustrations to accompany his own text.

    Intaglio printmaking can be dated back to the people, around the year 3000 BCE. This example of Intaglio by William Hogarth, was created using what type of Intaglio printing engraving. The print is produced by pressing a dampened paper against the plate.This print by Francis Jukes, entitled, Mount Vernon, is a beautiful example of. After the plate was wiped clean, the ink remains only in the incised areas. Then the whole plate is coated with ink. A line is incised into the surface with various tools or with acid.

    London, Oxford University Press, 1970, p. Gross, Anthony, Etching, engraving, & intaglio printing. On the bench in front of him are his tools, including the burin, a sharpening stone and a double-ended etching needle. The design is very similar to those of playing cards. It shows Solis as an engraver, holding a burin and working on a metal plate.

    These are very difficult to make but were popular from the late 18th century through the end of the 19th century. This is then encased in a glass object, often a paperweight. An artist, usually an engraver, carves a small portrait, then makes a cast from the carving, from which a ceramic type cameo is produced. The ring is currently a size 9 and we offer complimentary resizing prior to shipping.A variation of a carved cameo is a cameo incrustation (or sulphide). This handsome vintage mens ring is crafted of sturdy 10K yellow gold and holds a hematite intaglio soldier.

    Glass cameo vessels, such as the famous Portland Vase, were also developed by the Romans.Modern cameos can be produced by setting a carved relief, such as a portrait, onto a background of a contrasting colour. In cheaper modern work, shell and glass are more common. This derives from another generalized meaning that has developed, the cameo as an image of a head in an oval frame in any medium, such as a photograph.Ancient and Renaissance cameos were made from semi-precious gemstones, especially the various types of onyx and agate, and any other stones with a flat plane where two contrasting colours meet these are "hardstone" cameos. Today the term may be used very loosely for objects with no colour contrast, and other, metaphorical, terms have developed, such as cameo appearance.

    Stone cameos of great artistry were made in Greece dating back as far as the 5th century BC. Cameos are often worn as jewelry, but in ancient times were mainly used for signet rings and large earrings, although the largest examples were probably too large for this, and were just admired as objets d'art. A kind of talisman whereupon magical spells was carved. Alternatively, a cameo can be carved by the traditional, but far more difficult, method directly out of a material with integral layers or banding, such as (banded) agate or layered glass, where different layers have different colours.Sometimes dyes are used to enhance these colours.Woman wearing a cameo at her throat, on a high lace collar in the Edwardian styleSir Wallis Budge alleged that the noun "Cameo" apparently comes from Kame'o, a word used in kabbalistic slang to signify a "magical square", i.e.

    In 1852 Théophile Gautier titled a collection of his highly polished, lapidary poems Emaux et Camées ( Enamels and Cameos).During the Roman period the cameo technique was used on glass blanks, in imitation of objects being produced in agate or sardonyx. The Neoclassical revival began in France with Napoleon's support of the glyptic arts, and even his coronation crown was decorated with cameos.In Britain, this revival first occurred during King George III's reign, and his granddaughter, Queen Victoria, was a major proponent of the cameo trend, to the extent that they would become mass-produced by the second half of the 19th century.The visual art form of the cameo has even inspired at least one writer of more recent times, the 19th-century Russian poet Lev Mei, who composed a cycle of six poems entitled Камеи ( Cameos, 1861), as reflections on each of the Roman rulers from Julius Caesar to Nero. The technique has since enjoyed periodic revivals, notably in the early Renaissance, and again in the 18th and 19th centuries. Roman Cameos became less common around in the years leading up to 300 AD, although production continued at a much reduced rate right through the Middle Ages. The most famous stone "state cameos" from this period are the Gemma Augustea, the Gemma Claudia made for the Emperor Claudius, and the largest flat engraved gem known from antiquity, the Great Cameo of France. They were very popular in Ancient Rome, especially in the family circle of Augustus.

    The Renaissance cameos are typically white on a grayish background and were carved from the shell of a mussel or cowry, the latter a tropical mollusk.In the mid 18th century, explorations revealed new shell varieties. Before that time, cameos were carved from hardstone. The most famous example of a cameo from the early period is the Portland Vase.Although occasionally used in Roman cameos, the earliest prevalent use of shell for cameo carving was during the Renaissance, in the 15th and 16th centuries. Blanks could be produced by fusing two separately cast sheets of glass, or by dipping the base glass into a crucible of molten overlay glass during blowing. During the early period they usually consisted of a blue glass base with a white overlying layer, but those made during the later period usually have a colourless background covered with a translucent coloured layer. Roman glass cameos are rare objects, with only around two hundred fragments and sixteen complete pieces known, only one of which dates from the later period.

    In history, agate portrait cameos were often gifts from royalty to their subjects. Cameo subjects Classically the designs carved onto cameo stones were either scenes of Greek or Roman mythology or portraits of rulers or important dignitaries. Conch shells carve very well, but their color fades over time.After 1850 demand for cameos grew, as they became popular souvenirs of the Grand Tour among the middle class. This sparked a big increase in the number of cameos that were carved from shells.

    Portland Vase, the best known piece of cameo glass. Cup of the Ptolemies, a large Roman or Hellenistic vessel. An ancient Hellenistic bowl made of a very large cameo and purchased by Lorenzo de' Medici during the Italian Renaissance. Gemma Augustea Cameo – Roman, after 10 AD. The gem measures 15,7 x 11,8 cm.

    " Gonzaga Cameo": Ptolemy II and Arsinoë II. The colour of the glass was intended by the artist to imitate turquoise. The work is signed "Herophilos Dioskourid" ("Herophilus, son of Dioscorides"). This portrait of a man with laurel wreath is probably of Emperor Tiberius. Herophiloska Cameo – Roman, 14 to 37 AD. Gemma Claudia Cameo – Roman, 49 AD.

    This head of Augustus was carved from a four-layered sardonyx. Blacas Cameo: Roman, about 20–50 AD. Ptolemaic double cameo-Hellenistic, 278–270/269 BC. The carving is a three layer agate. Carved in Italy in the period of 37–41 AD.

    The face is carved from the white layer. In this cameo the top red-brown layer has been carved into roses. "The head of Flora Cameo" – Benedetto Pistrucci.

    Schaffhausen onyx – Roman, Augustan-era, depicting Pax Augusta or FelicitasA modern hand-carved portrait cameo of white on blue-layered agate, set in 18 kt white goldMany modern cameos are carved into layered agates. The ensuing publicity earned Pistrucci several commissions. Payne challenged Pistrucci to carve a copy to prove his claim. The Italian carver Pistrucci claimed to have carved it himself.

    For example, thinning the top black layer on a three-layer stone changes its color to shades of brown. This way a very realistic, lifelike quality to a figure can be achieved. The layers are translucent this allows the artist to create shading effects by removing material to allow the background layer to show through. The colors are usually black on white on black. Three-layer stones are sometimes made. The most usual colors used for two-layer stones are white on black, white on blue, and white on red-brown.

    A film of diamond slurry is used to aid cutting and the die vibrates ultrasonically in a vertical motion. This is a process where multiple copies of a master design can be produced very quickly by pressing a master die onto the agate cameo blank.
