Castonguay makes his artwork by hand carving and printing woodblocks. A woodblock is essentially a hand-carved stamp. Woodblock prints, aka woodcuts, are made through a process of elimination. First, Castonguay draws a design onto a piece of wood. Areas to show ‘white’ are cut away with a chisel leaving the characters or image in ‘black’ at the original surface level. The stamp is coated with ink and pressed onto paper by hand. Large woodblocks require a specialized machine, either an etching or platen press, to exert enough force to produce a quality impression. Orders ship same day or next; purchases over $99 ship for free via USPS Priority Mail. See our terms and conditions or reach out directly with any questions.
