12/4/2019 - A Beautiful Block Print for Christmas?|
The best expression of Arts & Crafts art is the artist’s designed, hand-carved and hand-printed block print.|
Fair Oak Workshops features 3 of the best contemporary artists:
Laura Wilder is one of our enthusiastic artists whose style fits perfectly into the aesthetic of the Arts & Crafts movement.
She has been represented by Fair Oak Workshops since 2005 as the designer and plate carver for our exclusive series of Seasonal Block Prints long since sold out.
Shown below are two of her more popular block prints: The Gloaming II and Seasons IV.
You can shop and order Laura’s multi-media artwork HERE.
Yoshiko is an artist who has emerged over the years as a superb designer of greeting cards, block prints, posters and book covers.
Her Japanese heritage provides the inspiration to capture the oriental aesthetic so sympathetic with the art of the American Arts & Crafts Movement.
Yoshiko is one of our early Fair Oak Workshops block print artists and craftsmen.
Shown below are her two latest block prints; The Rainier Mazama Ridge and a 3 Sisters Evening Triptych.
You can shop and order Yoshiko’s block prints and greeting cards HERE.
Vermont artist William Hays has been creating beautiful works of art for more than 40 years.
He began painting in watercolors as a teenager and eventually ended up with a degree in sculpture from the University of Alaska.
After moving to Vermont in 1987, Hays concentrated on painting in oils.
His work in linocut block prints began with the recession in 2007 and since 2012 he has concentrated exclusively on block prints.
We found Hays about a year ago and his block prints have impressed our customers perhaps more for their artistic quality than their Arts & Crafts style.
Show below are three of Hays more popular block prints: Autumn Field, Glorious Day and
You can shop and order Hay’s block prints HERE.
Christmas is 3 weeks from today so we suggest you order your block prints soon to allow time for delivery in time for gift giving!
