Artist’s Proofs

Originally part of the printmaking tradition, wherein printmakers would run a few prints to get past the ‘first pancake’ phenomenon, calling these first two or three trial copies in the run ‘proofs’. See more detail about printmaker’s proofs here. My artist’s proofs are like a ‘baker’s dozen’. This means that with a limited edition work of, say, 15, there is one extra ‘artist’s proof’. I only ever make one of these, and I only make them available when the full edition has sold out. Also, they are only available for purchase directly from me, here at sculpture.nz.
