Description

Mokuhanga is a Japanese technique that uses water-based materials instead of oil-based like many western styles of printmaking. This piece uses four separate blocks to create the background, the body of the waxwing, the berries and branches, and the outline. I carved it in the traditional Mokuhanga method using a knife and chisel and each layer was printed with the kento method.
