2/23/2019 - A POTPOURRI OF ITEMS FOR REVIEW!
1) A MICA TABLE LAMP:

We bought this lamp as a bedside lamp about 15 years ago. The lamp is an original Mica Lamp model #49 and is no longer in production being replaced by a smaller version Mica Lamp #50. This lamp has 3 sockets with acorn pulls and also has a cord switch. The shade is of the lighter Almond Mica (for reading). The lamp base is quarter-sawn oak finished medium brown and the lamp with shade is 26" tall (it’s really a table and not bedside lamp) and the shade is 21" in diameter.
You can buy this lamp HERE. Subject to prior sale.

2/13/2019 - LAURA WILDER'S BLOG 'MAKING WINTER WOODS IV' !
Just before leaving for Asheville and the annual Arts & Crafts Conference this weekend at the Grove Park Inn, Laura Wilder released another Winter Woods block print, this one being 'IV' (fourth).


Available as usual matted or matted and framed, Winter Woods IV is a handmade, hand-signed limited edition of 198 block prints in 7 colors.

You can order Laura's NEW BLOCK PRINT HERE.

Laura's blog post 'Making Winter Woods IV' is available HERE.

Laura's final comment about this block print:
I get cold easily, and survive life in the snow belt by staying indoors and wearing many layers eight months out of the year.
But when the sun shines low after a big snowfall, I cannot resist a visit to the beautiful blue woods, warmed by the sun's orangey golden glow.

 
2/9/2019 - YOSHIKO YAMAMOTO RELEASES NEW BLOCK PRINTS!
Yoshiko Yamamoto of Arts & Crafts Press recently announced 3 new block prints.
As usual they are available matted or matted and framed by Dard Hunter Studios.

You can shop and order the NEW BLOCK PRINTS HERE.

1) GLOWING LANTERN – AFTERNOON

The new AFTERNOON print is shown above on the left; the previous EVENING print is shown at right. While this print is a companion print for our customers who previously bought the EVENING print, both prints are available if you want to buy the pair new. This new AFTERNOON print is a signed and limited edition of only 40; the original EVENING is a signed and limited edition of 133.
Yoshiko writes: "The elegant stained-glass lantern at the back porch of the Gamble House (circa. 1908) has been one of my favorite designs by the architects, Greene & Greene. I’ve been always drawn to this iconic lantern in Pasadena, California, but have been somewhat hesitant to make a print of it. It was so perfectly proportioned that I felt I had to wait until I was able to carve all the details without fail."
This linoleum block print was printed from 16 layers of colors using hand-carved blocks. Each color was hand-printed on acid-free 100% cotton Strathmore Paper, with Charbonnel ink, using Vandercook 219AB letterpress.

2) BLACK OAK

Yoshiko writes: "Described as one of the most beautiful and largest oaks by John Muir, black oaks are magnificent trees. I especially love the grove of black oak trees in Yosemite Valley in fall when the leaves of these trees turn yellow and golden, bursting forth with colors."
A Limited Edition of 190 woodblock printed in 8 colors.

3) BRISTLECONE PINE

Yoshiko writes: "This woodblock print is based on my sketch of a bristlecone pine near White Mountains, in eastern California, now within the Inyo National Forest. Growing just below the tree line in the harsh climate, bristlecone pine trees are the oldest living organisms on this planet. Known for their extraordinary longevity, they live thousands of years, mostly in the Southwestern states. I love the Bristlecone pine's gnarly barks and sparse foliage. They are stubborn, uncompromising and tenacious, yet are so beautiful in their austerity. Their haunting, silent silhouette on the craggy slopes stirs our emotion and imagination.
Limited Edition of 210 woodblock prints, made from hand-carved wood and linoleum blocks. 100% cotton, acid-free paper.

We expect Glowing Lantern - Afternoon of only 40 prints to sell out quickly.
