Open Press Project: Print Exchange 2023

This drypoint engraving was created on clear acrylic and printed using Itaglio Carbon Black Ink on Fabriano Rosaspina White 220g. The image is an etched drawing of the first image I saw of my unborn baby, nicknamed "Pip".

An edition of 10 prints, 'Pip' was created using a tiny 3D printed press, from Germany based Open Press Project and submitted to their 2023 Open Print Exchange.

I discovered the brilliant mini printing presses during a Drypoint Printing workshop at Sussex Prairie Gardens, with artist Sarah Cliff. The Open Press Project is a wonderful innovation from design duo, Martin Schneider and Dominik Schmitz, that gives artists all over the world affordable access to trying a printing press at home.

Pip will be featured in the Open Print Exchange catalogue and exhibited in Cologne and Sydney later this year as part of a touring exhibition, whilst nine of the prints will be exchanged with fellow artists from around the world. It's a beautiful thing to know Pip is making their mark on the world already.
