Here in the south central part of Canada we are counting the days to SPRING! Like so many, Winter is always too long for my huMom & I. With that always in mind lately, today’s artist is pawsitively pawfect; Dot, Jerry Underfoot, & I all agree, which is not always the case, but I dogress. Artist Georgina Warne is a ceramicist & printmaker. She combine both practises, often printing directly onto clay.
In her own words Georgina Warne says this about her work, “I have always been inspired by nature; my observations of creatures & their behaviour & the commonplace. I am often drawn in by details, qualities & subtle colour. I’m inspired by the poetry of John Clare & Ted Hughes & the nature writing of Richard Mabey, Robert Macfarlane & the late Roger Deakin.”
Georgina’s dry point prints are created by cutting or scratching the image onto a plate, of copper & Perspex, with a diamond tip. Once the drawing is complete she then prints it, using her own press, from plate to paper. Georgina makes few editions, sometimes just 5 or 10. She hand colours every single print she pawduces with watercolour washes, this helps to make each piece pawtacular in it’s own.
I’ll stop yapping so we can take a sniff at the wagnificent prints Dot, Jerry Underfoot & dug up for you. Next week we pawmise to share Georgina’s ceramic work; it’s furbulous. Oh dog, I almost forgot to mention that the furbulous print at the top is titled, ‘Spring Is In The Air’.

Have a wagnificent weekend! Remember to be gnawsome, be kind & stay safe.
CEO Olivia, with Dot & Jerry Underfoot 🐾💜🐾
