Printmaking + quilting


selva primeval, 2008

I decided to put some of the fabric I printed with gelatin plates to good use so I made a small art quilt. I learned the gelatin-plate printing technique from Rayna Gillman and her new book. The butterfly is block-printed from a stamp I carved. The quilt also incorporates some printed mulberry paper and some found object paper.

I need to schedule time for another printing session, the resulting fabric is so unique and versatile, and the technique was pretty quick and easy.

You did make some beautiful prints in class, Jane, and this shows it off perfectly. Can't see what else you make!

I really like the simplicity of this piece...and green of course.

I am curious how you attached the postage stamp to your piece.
