Linoleum Block Prints by Suzi Linden

http://ih2.redbubble.net/image.12545423.3131/flat,550x550,075,f.jpg
Hand cut and pulled linoleum block prints. I love to explore the relationship of positive and negative space. I use Akua Intaglio soy based ink.

If you would like I can bring a small press and create prints on site.

Roundabout

https://img0.etsystatic.com/031/0/5226892/isa_760xN.7358949444_bi69.jpgRoundabout is my outlet for creative re-use and re-purposing of mostly vintage materials like books and wallpaper. It all started as a small idea to turn old books into sketchbooks for my friends, and over time I’ve cemented my process of re-binding, and added finishing touches like vintage wallpaper liner pages and a library-style info card, to create hundreds of keepsake journal/sketchbooks that are truly unique.
I also block print alphabet letters on the removed book pages to create festive banners for home and celebrations. The book pages and wallpaper also add vintage charm to the my origami star ornaments, and original hand-cut silhouettes.

Terrarium Design

http://media-cache-ec0.pinimg.com/236x/dd/4e/80/dd4e802fd70708420c3250873b3888f5.jpgLike many inventions, Terrariums were an accidental discovery. A gentleman by the name of Nathaniel Bagshaw Ward was attempting to observe the metamorphosis of an insect in a closed environment. Using a simple glass bottle with some soil and water, he inadvertently sprouted a small fern and grass plant. He was able to keep the plants alive for nearly four years without watering or maintenance.

Fast forward 170 years and you have the modern day terrarium that still retains the exciting chance to observe nature and be surprised by it.

So please feel free to come and make your own little plant world!
