Art for Your Kitchen to Benefit Japan

There are many wonderful posters and other art objects being created and sold to raise money for Japan relief efforts. These hand-pulled block prints by Berkeley artist Rigel Stuhmiller are especially beautiful and 100% of the profits will go to Save the Children to benefit Japan.

To make these prints, each image was hand-carved onto blocks and then printed by pressing the inked blocks onto cream colored etching paper, which is then rubbed using a wooden spoon to transfer the ink. Since this is a hand process, no two prints are exactly alike. There are four images: Japanese Turnips, Tat Soi (pictured above), Chinese Long Beans, and Napa Cabbage.

Ms. Stuhmiller has worked on Chino Nojo farm near San Diego with many Japanese agricultural workers who have ties to the tsunami-stricken regions of Japan. For more information, see Ms. Stuhmiller's Etsy page.

Find it: Napa Cabbage, Tat Soi, Chinese Long Beans, and Japanese Turnips, $45 each on Etsy.
