Collection: Steamroller Print Series

Imagine printing plates too big to be passed through a traditional printing press. Enter: big machinery! A "steamroller" was hired for the "Under Pressure" outdoor printmaking events, held for years outside Atelier 6000 in Bend.

“It’s the weight of that particular piece of equipment also we can crush things into the paper.” said Pat Clark, Atelier 6000 president. “Things I would never allow people to put through the presses in the studio we can do out here.”

Some of my prints from a few of those events are here. Many are shown as they were originally printed, others were added to and worked further with other media. See the process on OPB.
