The Cill Rialaig Project was set up by publisher Noelle Campbell-Sharpe, as an artist retreat on the Bolus Head peninsula in County Kerry, Ireland. The images in this slideshow reflect the time I spent at Cill Rialaig with fellow artists from Lecheile an Irish-Welsh collaborative project – Communication through printmaking.

I’ve been experimenting with the idea of plating mounting card as a way to extend the life of collagraph plates. The process of plating the card works well and they appear to go through the press O.K. I have yet to ink one up.The plating process is slow, this plate took twelve hours. I’m planning to do some more work on textures and plating paper plates.
