Intaglio Collograph

Intaglio = a process in which a design is engraved into the surface of a plate so that when ink is
applied and the excess  is wiped off, ink remains in the grooves and is transferred to paper in
printing, as in engraving or etching

Collograph = (sometimes spelt ‘collagraph’) comes from the Greek word kollo meaning glue, gum, stick, and the word graph, meaning  the activity of drawing.  A collograph is a process of creating images from plates made from materials which can be cut and glued together.

In the case of Intaglio Collograph, the techniques we largely focus on at Seymour Road Studios are cutting into the card plate to achieve results similar to etchings.   Being made from card which is simple to work with, plates are not durable for producing large editions, but a good number of repeats and variants can be achieved – with care, plates may last to produce more than a dozen impressions.
