ILIFFE YARD

ABOUT

I’m Justine Wall of Hector & Haddock, and I work from my studio on Salisbury Plain, where I create pieces inspired by, and often incorporating, paper ephemera and traditional printing methods.

Everything I make is either hand-cut from original vintage paper or, in the case of my screen prints, linocuts and cards, inspired by the thousands of vintage texts I collect. The smallest thing can inspire a piece, whether it’s 1970s recipe book images, to the typeface on a Borax box, I take inspiration from the past and design pieces which I feel honour the graphic simplicity of times gone by. I purposely retain a handmade feel to everything – even though the linocut designs go through a digital process to enlarge them for my screen prints, I want there to be imperfections- a reminder that the design was cut by hand.

I do not make copies of any of my paper cut pieces: each is a one-off. Even the screen prints are limited edition, so are finite, and the linocut designs change frequently. I design what inspires me at the time, and what makes me happy.


WHAT TO BUY
