Smeaton’s Pier St Ives is a screen print which is a form of printmaking. Screen printing uses a screen made from fabric stretched tightly over a frame. Using a stencil to block out the non-printing areas. Using a squeegee to force ink through the open fabric. Originally this method used silk as the fabric/mesh, therefore it is also know as silkscreen printing.
Smeaton’s Pier forms the western wall of St Ives harbour. It frames a view, as depicted in this limited edition screen print, looking towards the sweeping Cornish coastline of Carbis Bay and out into the expanse of the Atlantic Ocean beyond. This piece is a limited edition in a run of 50 prints. The number and signature at the bottom of each image providing a unique identifier for each individual piece within the limited print run.
