flight palimpsest storyblock

flight palimpsest storyblock

The newest palimpsest block from the studio, with a lovely raven in flight.

Each piece has multiple layers of handwritten stories on flight & imagination, that are sanded lightly & erased before the next layer is added. The palimpsests have such a distinct feel of living thought captured in flight. They're some of our favorite pieces...

    • average size of storyblock: 5" w, 6 "h, 1 - 1.5" d
    • wood species will vary according to what we have on hand
    • packaged in an organic cotton bag with a small card telling a brief history of the chosen wood & the bird & brush series
    • each block is shaped & painted here in the studio with our unique bird & brush process:  the final piece has 6-8 layers of paint, ink, & graphite (including a secret handwritten wish...) - making each an original

      • Here in the studio, we sand, paint, & hand finish each piece with natural beeswax.
      • Flying Edna studio signature on the back
      • natural grain on the sides and back exposed to show the raw wood
