These prints are a group of woodcuts, printed in the traditional Japanese technique of carving a master block. Originally the master artist would do the carving and turn the actual printing over to his apprentices to apply color and complete the edition. I use handmade Japanese papers made from kozo. The printing process is much the same as the ancient techniques. Having no studio of young apprentices at my command, I myself use a rubbing pad made of tough bamboo wrapped over a hard disk to apply pressure to the surface of the block to finish the job. These prints are "relief prints"
