Japanese Wood Block/Handmade Paper
4" x 6" image, 8" x 10" mat
The undulating patterns of polypore mushrooms growing on trees along our road remind me of ocean waves and inspired the design for this print.

An edition of 18 prints was printed from three carved wooden blocks using the traditional water-based Japanese techniques on my own handmade kozo paper. Variations in the color of the paper from light blue to light green makes each print slightly different.
