Photographic Art Print 'Serene Pebbles'
Photographic Art Print 'Serene Pebbles' is an individually made Giclee art print of a delicately arranged pile of rounded pebbles. PLEASE NOTE: this listing is for the print only. The frames and furnishings shown here are not included, but they are shown to scale!
There's more than just a hint of Zen about this Photographic Art Print 'Serene Pebbles'. Just to look at it is to start to relax. If you have an area of your home where you go to chill, or meditate, this is the ideal wall art for that space. The delicate tones and textures, the smooth shapes, and the arrangement, all combine to have a calming effect.
By printing the image on a softly textured archival paper from Hahnemuhle, using archival Canon inks, I've tried to continue that feeling of calm. And what's more, the combination creates an artwork which will literally last a lifetime - or more if it's treated with care.
PRINT SIZE: paper size - 483 x 329 mm; image size - 435 x 309 mm.
The print size allows it to be mounted behind an A3 aperture mount in a 50x40cm frame or surface mounted in a larger one. The choice is yours, but a very affordable starting point would be the Ribba or Lomviken frames from IKEA.
This image is one of a series, each with its own emphasis, but all with the same purpose. For the others in the series, see the thumbnails below.
About 2minty studio
Hello! We are a husband and wife team at 2minty studio.
Mostly it all started when we moved house and had a real studio, on site, with plenty of space. It was amazing and very quickly we both wanted to act on creative ideas which had been bubbling in the background for a while.
Girts, a retired architectural photographer, has always been intrigued by hand-built ceramics, the possibilities with shape, texture, glaze and decoration just really engage him. So a new kiln came to the studio and all sorts of things began to disappear from the house, empty bottles to use as moulds, kitchen scales, and lengths of material to create textured clay all found their way there. He shapes the clay by hand rather than using a potters wheel.
When the kiln is opened after a firing and the waiting for it to cool down is over, the lid is lifted with great excitement. Will it be triumph or tragedy? Thankfully, usually the former.
My paper weaving started some years ago when I was doing test prints of abstract photos I had taken for book publishers to use on their covers. The fine art paper was so lovely and velvety I couldn't throw them away. Later I came back to them and cut one into strips, and the rest just followed naturally.
I love how the colours and textures interact when woven, it's quite a slow progress but I love to watch it take shape. It's exacting and methodical work but I find it relaxing. I have quite a paper stash, lots of old maps which I love, old books and shop catalogues. Always the paper is acid free and matt.
Recently I've really enjoyed making something that is three dimensional and the cotton rope bowls have become addictive. So many ways to decorate, and an infinite number of possible shapes, all so useful. In our house, every prototype bowl gets filled very quickly!
