Day 8 ( Week 2) The Press Down Under
The press I work on is down steep stairs, so I plan stretches of time to print, and time in the studio to prepare plates, draw, think and assemble the printed pieces on my armature using strong magnets. I am in experiment mode, and it feels good to be able to try things without permanently attaching them yet.
I made a new bird plate and a plate with my writing (taken from a poem). I am combining these. Here they are with the poem that goes with them:
A bird with wings of words
flies from glass to press,
Hoping to be read,
hoping to be understood.
