This is a linocut relief print original. It is of a Cowrie shell, hand printed with gold paint. I hand carved the stamp myself. Cowrie shells symbolise many things for me, one being child loss. This piece can mean anything to you. Either way, its a gem of a piece and comes in 2 options:
8x13cm hand torn indian cotton rag or
7x10" watercolour paper.
These are MADE TO ORDER. Please allow unto 2 weeks for your purchase to be dispatched.
I paint my originals in my west facing Edwardian artist studio. My Original Watercolours are created using mainly Bespoke Handmade Watercolours. My speciality is using very rare and highly sought-after gemstone infused watercolour paints. These particular paints are extremely precious, rare and unique. They are literally made from the ground up.
I also use watercolour inks, as well as introducing relief printing. Relief printing is a hand carved piece of Lino, which I carve myself, and it is then made into a stamp as such, and boom, art!
Caring for your piece of artwork isn't hard, but bear in mind, if you decide to place your piece in a brightly lit room with a lot of natural light then it will inevitably fade over time.
I believe that pieces of art and gifts should not be defined by monetary value. Instead, they can be defined by sentiment, memories and love. You as the recipient or even if this is for a gift have something to treasure forever without having to pay a fortune for a piece of artwork.
Unmounted and unframed.
