What is an edition?

In art, edition refers to entire number of identical or similar items produced or issued as a set. It could be an edition of lithographs issued from a single type, all copies of a drawing or painting among other artworks. It can also be used in art to refer to work that is closely related to the original version of the artwork.

Wood

Wood is one of the most ancient and versatile materials used to create artwork. It has been used as the base for paintings, to make brush handles, pens and pencils, as easels to support canvas, for wood engraving, woodcut and woodblock printing, and sculpting.

Carborundum

Carborundum is the trademark name for silicon carbide crystals used as an abrasive material in sandpaper, cutting tools and grinding wheels. Artists originally used the substance for grinding lithography stones, but collagraph prints use it to create texture and tone gradients.

Pencil

A Pencil is a writing tool constructed with a core of solid pigment, either black or colored, encased by a protective layer of wood or composite material. Pencils leave marks on paper by leaving part of the core pigment on the surface.
