This class is an introduction to the polymer photogravure process, a non-toxic alternative to the traditional copperplate photogravure process. This intaglio printing process enables the artist to produce continuous-tone photographic images using ink and paper. Plate-making, inking, wiping and printing techniques will be covered in this class and the student will leave with 8-12 etched plates and numerous prints from each plate.

The length of the class will allow the student the opportunity to make a small editioned portfolio of prints and is an ideal opportunity to unify a small body of work with several sets of a series of prints. Photographers interested in exploring a new printing process will learn all the basic techniques necessary to return to their own studio and begin making prints using this process.


Clay Harmom
Ever since Clay Harmon first viewed a platinum print, he has been creating his art in platinum/palladium and a host of other 19th century photographic print processes such as Gum Bichromate, Cyanotype, and Van Dyke Brown. Somewhere along this fifteen-year journey, he began getting ink under his fingernails and dove headfirst into mastering the photogravure process.

While never one to walk away from taking a pretty landscape picture in the northern latitudes, his favorite subject matter is the quirky world of parking garages, nighttime urban scenes and freeway overpasses, with the occasional statue’s butt, cathedral interior and offbeat portrait thrown in the mix. He enjoys sharing his knowledge and has taught alternative process workshops for the Penland School of Crafts, Asheville Bookworks, Cullowhee Mountain Arts, the Houston Center for Photography, the Museum of Fine Arts Houston, the Kalamazoo Institute of Art, and Project Basho in Philadelphia.

He is represented by the Blue Spiral Gallery in Asheville North Carolina, and has exhibited work at Fotofest in Houston, Rayko Gallery in San Francisco, Houston Center for Photography, and the Clear Lake Arts Alliance. His work is in the permanent collection at the Museum of Fine Arts Houston, and in private collections in the Americas, Europe and the Far East. www.clayharmon.com
