Close-up on carving linoleum blocks

Yesterday, we covered the idea of using linocuts to make impressions on clay. I needed a closer look at this art form…a tutorial on how to carve the lino. We know about the block of lino and the tools, but just how do we go about using them? What follows are two videos which help ground us in the medium. As I consider a design for clay, I must remember that it has to translate well with the type of clay I’m using. Heavily grogged clay won’t take fine detail, for instance. But, there seems to be no end to the application of this method and it’s exciting!
