22.12.2010 – Second New Year card designed by Gary Stern

In this second series of etchings, the artist Gary Stern, who lives in Weesen CH, draws on further stages in the making of pipes for inspiration, and this is realized in his work.

The basis and the workpiece for his endeavour are the crude tin plates cut to a size of 16.6 x 18.6 cm. Their woven texture, which is created by casting on cloth, forms the matrix for his work.
