About The Rabbit

"Collagraphy is a really versatile printing process in which a textured plate is inked up and put through a press. Different textures hold varying amounts. of ink and print different tones. Anything with a low relief texture can be stuck down and used: wallpaper, leaves, fabrics, tapes and threads etc."

Glen Alps invented this contemporary form of printmaking in 1955.  

Julia Ayres offers additional commentary "A collagraph plate is a collage of carious techniques and materials assembled to print as line and texture.  Making a collagraph plate invites spontaneious creativity and personal response to natural materials and found objects." Printmaking Techniques by Julia Ayres
