Journal article, Peer reviewed
MetadataShow full item record
This article documents practice-led research from the artist’s position as print ‘maker’ within contemporary craft. The methodology embodies David Pye’s first-hand account of the workmanship of risk. The project integrates Computer Numerical Control (CNC) milling to overcome process limitations; to realise scalable complex multi-block relief prints and to allow further exploration in colour printing. The report reflects on the process of transforming reduction relief prints into tessellating multi-block relief prints, as well as commenting on the situation and timescale in which the research took place. The outcome delivers new insights into the author’s artistic practice.
