Frank Lloyd Wright Collection® Whirling Arrow Dinnweware by Coors China and Hammered Antique Stainless Flatware by Reed & Barton.

2/14/2015 - NEW 2015 ITEMS FROM ARTS & CRAFTS PRESS ! ! !

The title of this print "When Poppies Bloom" is based on a 1901 poem written by Sarah J. Day:
"Tis the time of the poppies;
The fields are aflame;
And looking down;
From the mountain crown;
The way whence we came;
At the canyons mouth lie acres unrolled;
Glowing and gleaming with; molten gold."

Based on Yoshiko's sketch of the spring time in California Central Coast, this linoleum block print evokes what we love about California landscapes: gentle curve of the distant hills, the silhouette of eucalyptus trees, clumps of old oaks, and of course, brilliant California poppies.

This triptych was printed on hand-carved blocks and polymer blocks. First Yoshiko hand carved two outline blocks. Then she hand-cut stencils in order to make nine more color printing blocks made of hard polymer material. Printed on 100% cotton acid-free, Rives BFK paper. Signed & limited edition of 210 prints.

ALSO having been born in the year of the SHEEP according to the Chinese zodiac, Yoshiko is quite excited about the year 2015!

To celebrate the Chinese New Year Thursday, February 19, Yoshiko made a "kiri-e" art (paper cut-out) and made blocks from the image to create letterpress-printed prints. All of the eight colors are printed on the antique printing press. The prints are handmade with carefully applied colored ink by hand.

FINALLY Yoshiko has just released three springy note cards to delight your senses!

The cards are all letterpress printed on the old Heidelberg printing press in The Arts & Crafts Press Studio in Tacoma, Washington!

BY THE WAY, if you will be attending the Arts & Crafts Conference Februay 20-22 at the Grove Park Inn in Asheville, NC, be sure to stop by and say hello to Yoshiko. Her booth is just to the left of the entrance to the Antique Show.
