Engraving is a printmaking method where incisions are crafted into a metal plate, serving to hold the ink and shape the resulting printed image.
Engraving is an intaglio printmaking technique where lines are meticulously incised into a metal plate, enabling it to retain ink. You typically use copper or zinc plates, and they undergo thorough polishing to eliminate any surface blemishes or scratches, ensuring that only the intended lines are transferred during printing.

James Jean’s Woodcutter, consecrated into bronze, embodies the complexity and technical prowess of the artist’s timeless compositions.The artist’s wood gathering motif evolved from references to 18th century engraving and Ninomiya Sontoku – a prominent Japanese figure of self education and diligence. Woodcutter now takes form as a young boy realised in bronze, chosen for its longevity and lustrous energy. His gathered firewood reveals glistening faces representing Kami – omnipresent spirits originating from the Shinto religion who traditionally assist hunter-gatherer groups. “As the kindling is burned, the boy is thankful to the spirits – for releasing their energy and creating heat.”
