Hazel: Ornaments And Atlas Pages
LEN: Inspired by seeing Barrie's book - see previous post - Hazel set to using some ornaments she had found in the print centre, to print on top of various maps, pages from an atlas.
Hazel Grainger: MA Multi-Disciplinary Print Student, focusing on letterpress and artists’ books and ephemera.
I am intrigued by the incidental pieces in type collections - the ornaments, punctuation, symbols, borders images and broken type. I want to build these up into patterns to print as a ‘coded language’ onto previous printed artefacts such as book, catalogue and atlas pages. On a broader scale I am using letterpress techniques to create text and pattern in unexpected ways within the production of artist’s books and ephemeral products.
