Impression Very Fine. Strong pigments; highly visible woodgrain; crisply printed on hand-made Japanese paper. (Small "ink voids" bottom due to natural irregularities of woodblock.)
Condition Pristine.
Reference/Illus Although not a "Made in Japan" woodblock, see our recent article titled "Talented Oregon Printmaker -- Kevin Clark" to learn about this talented artist/printmaker.
Comments Delightful and delicate--this print depicts bamboo leaves over-hanging a pond. The "circular water pattern" is, in fact, all acheived through the skillful use of highly visible natural "woodgrain."
Once full edition of 80 prints completed, Clark "strikes his initials" into the block's face to ensure NO future printings.
