This print shows a rusty sign at the old site of Teesside Steelworks in front of a very blue sky. Dorman Long was one of the steel-making firms that was nationalised in the late 1960s becoming part of British Steel.
It's an original reduction linocut print, using just one block of lino and a process of carving away the lino between each layer of colour to produce the final image.
It is a print from an edition of 8 prints using Zerkall extra smooth printing paper, 145gsm and Lawrence linseed oil relief printing inks. The image size is 30.5cm x 30.5cm with a generous
margin to allow for framing.
My linocuts are handmade from start to finish - hand carved, inked and handprinted, and as such they will have small variations between prints - making each print into a unique artwork.
All of my prints are flat packed if delivered within the UK, and will be sent packaged in tissue and a tube if delivered outside of the UK. If you have any questions, please just get in touch and thanks for taking a look!
