More Smith Print Studio Shots


I went back to Smith College yesterday to watch Jiha Moon's four plates come together. The printmakers were involved in a flurry of activity trying to get a good proof before the end of the session. Above is my friend Peter Pettengill wiping a plate. He's amazing. Watching him was like watching a dancer, such economy of motion yet his entire body was involved.

Here's a shot of one of the proofs (not the final):

I really enjoyed watching these master intaglio printers at work.

Greetings. I remember a while ago mentioning on your blog that I had applied for the Nagasawa residency...well, I got accepted and am in Japan at the moment.
