Collaborative project with Heather Prescott at the Wrexham Regional Print Centre. In the past the electrotype process was used to make metal copies of letterpress type.
As part of the Wrexham Print Centres Harts heath Project I have made an electrotyped plate of a workbench that was estimated as being first used in the early nineteenth century. Unfortunately I was only able to take an impression from a small part of it before the bench was removed to a museum. The image on the left is the reverse of the plate which is still attached to the mould and on the right is the part of the bench from which the impression was taken from.
Picture from Frances of the second piece of hers that we plated on Friday 11th.
Electro-forming some sculptures made by Frances Carlile from blackthorn branches.
Photograph shows one of Frances’s pieces ‘Breakwater’ standing on a piece of mine entitled ‘Tide’ Really fun creative day.
