Sturgeon Estuary

Item Number: 201501

Regular price $15.25 Sale


The "Ocean Day" bunch wanted me to draw a sturgeon for this year's aerial art display, so I started by doing this detailed sturgeon rubber stamp design with an estuary design on it's body.  A simplified version of the fish will be plotted out across 200 feet of beach, and drawn with the bodies of close to a thousand elementary school kids.

This is a fine art rubber stamp designed and made by Steven Vander Meer in Humboldt County, California. The die is deeply etched natural red vulcanized rubber, which is hand trimmed and adhered to red sponge cushion (the good kind, not the self-adhesive kind). The cushion is also trimmed by hand and then mounted to a smoothly sanded and oiled Maple block, with a clear black index printed on the top. The MEER IMAGE name is hot iron branded onto the end-grain of the block, and the SVM personal signature chop is added to the top of the block in red ink (space permitting).

Mount Type:Maple hardwood block indexed in black and finished with linseed oil. Block Width:1.75 inches Block Length:5.5 inches Block Thickness:3/4 inch Image Size:Approximately 1/4 inch less than block size
