This elaborate and elegant print relief by Jesse is inspired by the floral decorations one can spot outside praying temples in Thailand.
The whole process of devoting the time to carve such a big plate as well as choosing the type of paper is very much deliberate, it is very spiritual and meditative. Resulting in a very uplifting feel that transpires to the artwork.
It has been hand carved on a natural lino plate and has been printed with gold ink on beautiful dark grey hand made 100% cotton Khadi paper, which is only made in Karnataka (South India) using recycled cotton rags and non-toxic dyes creating unique, sustainable, acid free papers that are a joy to print with.
This piece is approximately 40 x 56.5 cm in size. Due to its hand made nature has uneven edges and it is purposely not exact.
