Through Blue Ice, a tunnel book, was created as a response to the vivid descriptions of blue ice, told to me by friends who have visited Antarctica and other cold places on our planet. All eight images were formed from individually created collagraph plates that were inked with oils; they were printed on Rives BFK papers, using a table top press at Carolee Jakes' studio in McLean, VA.
