Paul Roden and Valerie Lueth are Tugboat Printshop, a design studio that since 2006 has specialized in issues of engraving on wood. Established in Lawrenceville, Pittsburgh, craft images of this pair are hand carved in birch blocks. Once this process is completed, the plates are inked and then taken to the paper, allowing under the right conditions, impressions last a long time. Looking at the detail and quality as an essential part of their job, their works reflect that the duo found inspiration in the elements that nature provides.
