Rollaco Press Jo Degenhart

New Rollaco Press

Well, this Rollaco Gem Press is the latest addition to my little studio.

Rollaco Gem Press Jo Degenhart

I have had a little play and am planning some designs to print on it which I will show you soon but I thought it would be good to introduce you first.

Being six foot tall, I asked the maker John Pears to make me a taller stand in an effort to be kind to my back. Spending the rest of my career bent over a press as well as a desk drawing or carving probably would not end well. Standing up straight to work feels amazing! The gears are so smooth and turning the handle is a breeze, it really is a beauty.

So watch this space for some of the first prints I make!
