shaped plate relief
I cut a copper printing plate  with a jeweler’s saw or create atwork for a waterjet cutter to render the intended shape.The plate is inked with relief ink and printed under high pressure on an intaglio press to create a tactile embossing on the paper, filled with the chosen ink color.
multiplate intaglio
Traditionally-etched plates are used to create color separations, which are then printed on top of one another to make a multicolor imprint. Sometimes I use colors of mixed inks, sometimes I use commercial process ink colors to attempt to create “full color” images. Intaglio is not meant for process work, but the results are usually quite interesting
I use woodcutting tool s to shave away white areas in a piece of birch-faced plywood. The areas left untouched accept the ink and print black.
