Q: What is a woodcut print?
A: Stephen Huneck spent his days in his light-filled studio in St. Johnsbury, Vermont. To create a woodcut print, Stephen would first draw the design in crayon, laying out the prospective shapes and colors. He then took a wooden board and carves away all areas that will not be printed. The result is a series of carved blocks, one for each color in the print. One wall of his studio is completely covered with the collection of chisels that Stephen used to hand-carve each block of wood to make his wood-cut prints.
After a block has been inked with its respective color, acid-free, archival paper is laid onto the block and it is hand-pulled through our press at Dog Mountain. The finished wood-cut is a unique piece of original art, each one slightly different from the rest. All of Stephen Huneck's woodcut prints are limited editions, numbered and hand-signed. In other words: All woodcuts are originals.
Most woodcut prints are offered with black, yellow or chocolate Labs. Each print is available either unframed or framed in acid-free mats and a black painted frame.
Woodcut paper size: 17.5” x 25.5”
Woodcut image size: 16” x 20”
Framed woodcut size: 27” x 31”
PS. A woodcut print in not a carved peice of wood.
Q: What is a giclee print?
A: Giclee (pronounced "jhee-clay") is a French term meaning the "spraying of ink". It describes a technologically advanced way of producing fine art.
To make a giclee, we begin with an original artist's proof of the woodcut. We then take a high resolution image of the woodcut. Giclee printing is a digital process and it requires several steps to get from the original art to the print.
The first step is to capture the original by the use of a high quality digital camera. Next, the digitized image is loaded into a special computer program and color corrected to ensure that the colors match the originals. This color matching requires a high level of skill.
Our fine art giclees are printed on 100% cotton rag acid-free fine art paper using archival pigmented based inks. The ultra-fine density of the ink droplets allow for superior saturation, dynamic color, and thorough penetration into the surface. This assures a quality print with a long life. The inks are carefully matched to be compatible with the paper on which they are printed. Finally we reproduce the artwork using a sophisticated printer that is specifically designed to offer a greater resolution than achievable by normal printers. The ink and paper, both used in printing a giclee, are archival and will last for 200 years before any fading will occur. Giclees are the finest method or art reproduction available today. While the small giclees are an unlimited production, only 500 of each large giclee are printed.
The Stephen Huneck Gallery currently offers two sizes of giclees that come either unframed or framed and Stephen's signature is embedded on all giclee prints.
Small giclee paper size: 8.5” x 11”
Small giclee image size: 6” x 7”
Small framed giclee size: 12” x 14”
Large giclee paper size: 13” x 19”
Large giclee image size: 10” x 13.5”
Large framed giclee size: 19” x 22”
Q: How long does it take to get a sculpture made?
A: Please allow 4 to 8 weeks turn around time on sculpture production. They need time to be made, painted and dried completely before they're shipped.
Q: Can I get a t-shirt with a chocolate or yellow dog? Or can I change the color of the t-shirt?
A: The Lab depicted on our t-shirts come only as a black dog, unless it has two dogs on it already (Networking, Love is Give and Take) and only come on the color t-shirt as shown.
Q: Can I change the color of the Lab in the print I want to order?
A: Yes! Most prints that depict Labs can come as a black, chocolate or yellow. There is a color drop down option on the prints that allow it.
Q: What is a Dog Party and when are they?
A: Three words: So. Much. Fun! Twice a year we throw a party for four and two legged friends alike with a free hotdog BBQ and snack spread, dog contests and lots of tail wagging and bum sniffing. They always fall on the first Sunday of August and always the Sunday of Colombus Day Weekend. We start around noon and go until 4pm.
