i'm taking a printmaking class this year, and we started with copper plates. Intaglio is really challenging but very rewarding. Inspiration from the story, ''A Real Durwan'. I went with the concept of "you just use it and throw it away" and the idea that she was a mystery to those around her. First print of the semester - definitely not perfect, but it was fun.
In the Ancient world, the engraving of gemstones was considered a great, luxury art form. At the Ashmolean Museum, University of Oxford, England, the exquisite, sanguine Felix Gem (c. AD 1-50, Rome, Italy) catches the eye. The engraved gem, or intaglio is made from sardonyx, and depicts the Theft of the Palladion (the cult statue of Athena) during the Trojan War.
The Ashmolean is the world’s first university museum. Beautifully-curated and packed to the brim with treasures from around the world, a visit was the perfect way to bring Ancient culture to life for my Latin-learning teenager! 🏛
