Further Info

A handmade original kitchen lithography print by artist Lisa Benson.


It’s the depths of winter, the wind cuts through you, the skies are stormy with the tinge of potential snow and the remains, or the bones, of last summer are all that is left to remind us of what was. There’s beauty in winter’s bones, not only are they a reminder of what was but also a reminder of what is to come again. Nearly all of the seeds are gone now from these seed heads now, some of the seeds were food, some were lost and some are patiently waiting to sprout and grow.

“Winter’s Bones’ is a kitchen lithography print. Kitchen lithography is a process that uses kitchen foil, the type you use for cooking/roasting, and cola to make a printable plate. It is an interesting process that is not as easy as it may at first seem but it does give the opportunity to make some interesting marks. This print is made up of three layers so three separate kitchen lithography plates were made and printed one on top of the other using an etching press.    


The inks used for this print are Caligo Traditional Etching inks. 

The paper is Fabriano Unica  250gsm printmaking paper.

Handmade Prints

These prints are all handmade and as such there can be slight variations in the prints in an edition, though these are very slight. It means that each print in an edition is unique and is an original in it’s own right.

Varied Editions (VE) 

Prints that are marked VE by the edition number are part of a varied edition. This means there are enough difference between the prints that they are sold by their individual number. 


Please bear in mind that although I take every care to photograph the prints as faithfully as possible there can also be variations in colour between what you view on a screen and the original print.
