Active and passive sides of Catherine Watkins' Mini Halfwood Press No. 49

2009. Mini Halfwood Press Serial Number 60049. Etching Press. American black walnut, purple heart, Brazlian ipe woods, steel, brass, plastic. Accessory box poplar with purple heart trim.

Artist's Comment: Catherine, a designer in Australia, got the hybrid purple heart. She is the first in her country to get a Halfwood. I let her know she could be part of my plan to build Halfwoods for other artists “down under.” She said she'd watch for opportunities and let me know.
