frequently asked questions
How many prints are available?
There are only ever 10 ever created.
Can I have a print made smaller?
No, because each print is pulled directly from the tree I cannot make the size of the print smaller.
Do you make copies?
No, each print is an original, they vary slightly depending on placement, ink and pressure. These are not digital copies or renderings. They are original relief prints.
Are these drawings?
No, they are relief prints. A relief print is an image that is raised from a surface. The surface (Tree Stump) has contours from the growth season, only the raised contours receive ink during the print process which gives the ink to the paper when pressure is applied, leaving the growth ring pattern.
Do you ship internationally?
Yes but because of weight and size allowances I prefer to send the print unframed and have the buyer organise framing in there local area. ( I am more than happy to liaise with your local framer to discuss finishing details.)
Where do you find the trees?
I find the trees in their natural environment, while hiking or in the countryside. I do all the work out on site instead of taking a slab or cutting home to work on it.
My belief regarding the work is to not disturb nature, to take a humble approach and to not disturb the ecosystem.
What do the numbers mean on the print?
The numbers are the geographical location of where the tree stands on this planet.
I wanted to give each tree its individual name, instead of using its latin name or species of tree, I felt that it deserved its own unique name something that no other tree can have, its own unique identity.
Is this a photograph?
No, with closer inspection of each print, you will notice the raised ink from the printing process, each one is slightly different and offer a unique experience.
Just like humans there are subtleties in their composition, these small subtleties create an organic, warm, honest tone to the work.
Do you do commission work?
Please get in contact regarding the scope of work and see if it aligns with each others interests.
Can you come and print a tree on my property?
It depends on the tree and the location.
A part of my process is finding the tree naturally, also not every tree can be printed, depending on the size and species some just don't show the definition.
If the tree has significance to your life or has sentimental meaning please do get in touch and see what we can organise.
