about the foundry
Silverwattle bookfoundry is the realization of a nomadic artists publishing practice initiated in 1991 by Tim Mosely. With over 35 years of professional experience and having assembled over 50 artists books Tim maintains a lucid perspective on the book as a potent element within the vocabularies of creative practice. Drawing on a lifetime of experience in printmaking studios he is able to employ intaglio, relief, silkscreening, papermaking and lithography techniques in his work.He has developed a unique papermaking technique termed '“pulp printing” that combined with wet sheet collage is a highly versatile process for image generation in the sheet forming stage of the papermaking process.
