Handmade Paper Maker
יזהר נוימן - נייר עבודת יד
Over the years I have created different papers for the different types of printing - silk screen , relief , engraving, offset, woodblock and digital printing.
The papers are made according to the nature of the work
and to the desired size.
Some examples of collaborations-
Papers measuring 1X2 meters for Orit Hofshi
with her watermark, who creates her images using
Woodblock , frottage (rubbing) and painting
Woodblock artist Daniel Heyman lately commissioned large-size paper,35"x55"
for a series of woodblock prints, for which I made a new screen and formed the
sheets with a new blend of fibers, including flax fibers. the prints were printed at
Sundog Press, University of North Dakota,USA.
"The paper is splendid, it is wonderfully thick and has a real presence in the
work. Everyone I am working with also thinks it is terrific. We printed each sheet
a total of 6 colors, but I am sure that paper would have held up for 20 printings
or more. It didn't wear down at all"
artist Gabreiall Boros who is printing a series of woodblock prints on custom made paper -
"Delicious! Really even and wonderful surface. Absorbs the ink beautifully!"
