Among Silence_ Woodblock Print_ Nick Wroblewski
"Among Silence," Nick Wroblewski, Woodblock Print
Dear Kirstie,

We recently purchased a number of greeting card designs from "Artist's to Watch." (See examples, left column.) Among them are designs by woodcut artist, Nick Wroblewski. (See examples above, right and further below.)

Wroblewsii's large, hand cut woodblocks have a distinct aesthetic reminiscent of Japanese masters, yet uniquely his own. His oeuvre includes both reduction and multi-block printing.

Reduction prints are made from a single block of wood. The largest area of color is printed first, then, those areas intended to remain are carved away. The sequence of carving and printing continues until all the colors have been printed.

A multi-block process is used when colors are very different from one another and layering would affect their desired hue. You can see examples and learn more about, Wroblewski's print making process on his website

Why matting is recommended for photographs
 
This young lady's portrait is a perfect example of why we recommend matting (or some other spacer) be placed between the photograph and the frame's glass. Glass is a cold, dense material that easily condenses humidity from the atmosphere. We've all seen how moisture drips down the sides of a cold glass of iced tea or soda. Although usually not that extreme, glass in a frame can also condense humidity, causing moisture build up that can cause the glass to adhere to your photograph. Digital Photo Restoration has rescued this print from both age-related yellowing and moisture condensation. 
Chloe Castro with her  framed piece _Saint_
Every Picture Tells a Story

Chloe Castro, an Oakland based artist and objects conservator,  framed several pieces of her work with us, including the one shown entitled "Saint".
Chloe writes, "Even from walking in the door the first time, The Framer's Workshop was a joy! I didn't feel rushed when I was hemming & hawing over different color mat boards & was even encouraged to look at as many as possible. And the girl who helped me, Sam, was the most patient as I took my time framing my pieces myself. I can't wait to come back!"
