Taiyaki are a common street food snack in Japan. They’re somewhat akin to a fresh waffle with a red bean paste filling, served piping hot. These prints are slightly smaller than life sized. The background is decorated with a subtle sashiko-inspired stitch pattern.
This work is an original linocut block print, part of a limited edition of only 30 prints. Each work is handprinted using two different hand-carved linoleum blocks. The first block is inked up in brown to print the taiyaki, and the second is inked up in a pale blue/green/grey to print the background. Both inks are oil-based. The paper is a warm tan color. The paper may have one edge that is cleanly cut; the remaining three edges will be either a torn edge or the natural deckle edge.
Because each print is a handprinted original work of art, there will be slight variations between prints. Prints are sold without a frame.
