Mary C Taylor, “New Zealand Heritage V – Kokako”

1994. Colored etching, 21″ x 14″ image size. Framed in No. 1 – 1” around mitered and lap-joined flat.

I liked the artist’s sensibility in curving the top corners of the plate for this beautifully made print. The image’s boldness allowed for framing close (actually the flat lays on top of the glass to cover the margins), but the flat had to be designed to respect this important aspect and follow the curved corners of the plate mark. Top corners are mitered, bottom corners lap-joined.
