A hand carved, hand printed linocut of one of the sets of winding gear at Lewis Merthyr Colliery, now the Rhondda Heritage Centre. Printed on beautiful 100% cotton rag using three colours of linseed ink. Each of these prints is hand made and there’ll be some minor variation. I cut from a single block of lino, printing the lightest colour first, then cutting into the same block for the next colour and so on until the final darkest colour. This means that a cut can never be repeated, making the small editions of prints collectable. This version was made in an edition of fifteen prints.
