These prints are beautiful, using trees hundreds of years old, Bryan Nash Gill, an artist that lives next to an old mill, uses old tree stumps as a print block. He rolls ink onto the surface, lays a sheet of handmade paper over the ‘block’, and then painstakingly rubs a little at a time with his fingernails over the surface of the paper. Every single tree ring is touch by the artist.

The result is a print that captures the life of a tree set for the paper mill.
A unique way to immortalize the ordinary tree.
