Seb Trend | Sunset Squiggle

Image credit: Slugtown
For his solo exhibition Liquid Mud Painting at Slugtown Seb Trend has produced the lithograph Sunset Squiggle. We used the footprint of one of his ceramic works to create positive and negative masks. These were used to make the flat shape and also the drop shadow. Drawn layers were added, one a contour of the poured slips which is the back of the ceramic and one a "tattoo" layer.

The lithograph will be editioned shortly. It is available for pre-order at a special price until the end of the exhibition (14th Feb). It is expected that the edition will be completed and available by the end of March 2018.

edition size TBC

Published by the artist.

Price: £65 plus shipping (£5 UK and £10 international)

Purchases will support the artist and contribute directly to the running of Slugtown. Email contact.slugtown@gmail.com to order or for more details.

Colin Hagan

We've worked with graphic designer Colin Hagan (Northern Design) on a number of prints and it was good to work with him again on this wee piece. We'll probably be running an edition of this piece at some point in the future as there are bound to be a few of you out there who appreciate a pint or three. There is no harm in dropping us a line to show your interest.
