Potatoe Potatoes


This week I am in the midst of teaching a six week printing course, and again revisiting potato prints. The more potato prints I do, the more I love them, their accessibility and adaptability make them a great resource, especially when you use lino cutting tools with them as you can achieve a great line. Layering them in different colours creates great mid century feeling designs. I don't like wasting food so if you ever see reduced green (inedible) potatoes they are the best use of this damaged resource.
