February (Alder Catkins) – Linocut Print

by Sophie Schärer


The second in a series of linocut prints created by Sophie over the course of a year. Sophie would not be tempted to second guess her subject matter for each coming month, but instead would wait with eager anticipation to see what inspiration nature would provide.  

February’s gifts were Alder catkins, which Sophie put in an old salt-glazed jug on her windowsill. Perhaps the arrival of Alder catkins each year could become a gentle reminder of your forthcoming anniversary; and this print - a thoughtful memento of your happy day. 

Each design is carved from a single block, and then printed by hand onto cotton paper using an antique press. This print is available in yellow - chosen to reflect the particular time of year – and black. 

Please note that this item is made to order.
