Jeff White, Vertical Mill III. Woodcut, chine colle, monotype. Sheet 13 1/4" x 8 1/2". From a series of 5 based on a metal fabricating machine from JW's father's warehouse & incorporating a portrait of his father as a boy & various coral-inspired forms.

In the chine colle process, the back of the the thin, printed kozo paper is coated with methyl cellulose & allowed to dry. A heavier weight paper is soaked so that when the thin kozo is cut, applied to the heavy paper & ran through the press, the glue is reactivated & the 2 papers are bonded.
