"Bean Berry Brew", Claire Duffy, 2015
59.4cm x 84.1cm
My pattern represents the journey coffee goes through from seed to consumption. The pattern unifies this journey and celebrates each stage from growth, the people involved in the process, and its final destination: enjoyment. The print has a muted colour palette which gives the print an earthen feel and the gold represents the worth and beauty of the coffee bean. The process of screen-printing and pattern gives the print a sense of ritual, craft and skill, which I believe all printmakers and baristas share alike.
