    Product Description

    Tân - earth fire The Earth Fire burns within the heart of the seed. The dry husk contains the dormant force waiting to be sparked into green life in the warm womb of the earth. The humble seed scatters, to fall on stony ground or fertile soil. The Green Fire calls the shoots toward the light to drink the fertile rays of the sun. It is the generating heat of the compost pit, the earth-oven transforming decay into nourishment. A Red Fire warms the heart through our love and passion, and is also the fire of anger and rage. Color of blood, of red ochre with which the Ancients were buried, this is the fire of life and death. The Yellow Fire represents the spirit, illustrated by the golden halos of the Saints in the ancient manuscripts. The shining sun fire is wise and illuminating, the source of strength and fertility. The Blue Fire is cold, focused, the still power at the heart of the dancing flame. Fire of mind and intellect, color of the vast sky, blue is the fire of the bards and of the poets. The White Flame is the mystical fire, color of the Otherworld from which we come and to which we return. Design and text by jen delyth ©

    Giclee Printmaking

    Contemporary Print makers are beginning to use the Giclee digital print making process using archival Museum quality materials and inks to produce Fine Art limited edition prints. The word Giclee is from the French word "to spray". It is a high quality, plateless printing process that was developed in 1989, in which a fine spray of ink moves across the paper. It rivals lithography in its resolution and color range,and is fast becoming a favorite with artists. Robert Rauschenberg and David Hockney are among those using the technique. Prestigious museums such as the Guggenheim, the New York Metropolitan Museum, the Corcoran in Washington DC to mention a few, are enthusiasticaly embracing the use of Giclee printing from original art. Deep saturated colors, and fine tone resolution using archival water soluble inks and beautiful heavy archival papers produce rich prints which have outstanding fade resistance.
