Vandercook / Bruce Pearson

Many thanks to wildlife artists Paul Henery & Bruce Pearson plus builder Greg for delivering and assembling our Vandercook SP-15 Test Press. It'll work fine for now with manual inking until parts and inking rollers can be sourced.

Following the press assembly we pulled out a lovely stone for Bruce Pearson to experiment on. He produced a very fluid and stormy sea w/Albatross using tusche, pencils & rubbing ink. We look forward to Bruce returning in the future for a longer and less frantic visit.
