Pīwakawaka Original Woodcut Greeting Card
This original woodcut card is made by printing a hand-carved woodblock on to creamy handmade paper. The textured paper is made from New Zealand flax, also known as harakeke. The woodblock is inked up with oil-based ink using a hand roller or brayer.

I use my own hand-operated printing press and once printed, I hand-colour the woodcut with watercolour making every print a unique and original work of art suitable for framing.

The woodcut is signed by the artist and titled “Pīwakawaka FANTAIL”. It features the pīwakawaka or fantail, Rhipidura fuliginosa - a small, friendly, insect-eating bird that has a distinctive tail resembling a spread fan, a greyish head, prominent white eyebrows, brown back and rump, and a golden belly.

The print is mounted on a card made from 256gsm kraft card which measures 110 x 153mm when folded.

The card is lined with blank cream 100gsm paper for your message and comes with a matching brown envelope.

Free standard shipping worldwide.

The cards are available in a range of designs – see my other listings.
