Deeply pigmented. Printed on cream-colored, hand-made Japanese paper using
Japanese pigments, gum, and rice-paste.
||Although not a "Made in Japan" woodblock-- Kristensen is self-trained in Japanese carving/printing
techniques, and all of Tom's prints are also made using only Japanese papers, pigments, and tools.
Here are a few photos Tom sent to us taken inside his studio.
Kristensen is clearly a very talented and creative artist/printmaker.

With this new series of "American Presidents" prints, Kristensen has discovered immediate success--reporting
