Watch how this print is made PART 1 and PART 2.
This print was inspired by my grandpa Baker’s Round Oak wood/coal burning stove that has been in the family for almost 100 years. My grandpa inherited the stove in 1972 and had all of the chrome/silver pieces buffed and cleaned up. Before he inherited the stove, his great great grandma had stored the stove in their chicken coop and over time it got very rusty. The stove still works, but you better like the smell of smoke because when in use, the stove smokes up quite a bit.
The yellow tulip spout kettle is also an heirloom and is quite old. My grandpa received the kettle from his grandmother.
Printed on 8x10, natural white, printmaking paper.
Black ink with mustard yellow kettle.
Print comes dated and signed by yours truly.
Due to the handmade process, ink colors and textures may vary — each is one of a kind!
