Handmade indigo paper, ink stamps, sprayed porcelain, PVA, clear varnish
Arita, Japan | 2016
This series of prints was created alongside the Alpha Beakers series, using the same stamps that I had used on the coffeemugs. I wanted to use white stamp ink in reference to the Arita porcelain I had been stamping as part of that project. I used locally handmade indigo paper, which I felt was a nod to the timeless, futuristic blue/green celadon glaze on the mugs. Characters were stamped in vertical lines to suggest computer coding, with porcelain sprayed onto the paper surface in sections to partially cover the stamps. Clear varnish was painted onto the surface as another reference to glass or glaze.
