Acid and lignin-free paper, deluxe pigment print
One day while working in my furniture studio I found myself with an over abundance of wooden planks in the shop. That same day while thinking up a new project I dropped a book of matchsticks on my workbench. They landed in such a unique pile that I was compelled to sketch them out. Afterward, as I sat pondering my next project I decided to put two and two together and utilized the sketch and extra wood to create a series of hand carved woodcut matchstick prints. This is one of a series that reminds me that all good things will fall into place if you try and make the most with what you have in front of you.
