Briccoles and the leaning Bell Tower of St Martin's Church, Island of Burano, Venetian Lagoon
Briccole is the name of wooden posts which sprout from the waters of the Venetian lagoon. Tied together, usually in groups of two, they serve to signal the Venetian waterways. They define the canals in the Venetian lagoon and also show water depth. The isle of Burano is famous for the lace working art, (a tradition since the XVI century), its bright multi-coloured houses and for the culinary traditions. The centre of the island lies around the Church of St Martin’s. This is the only church of the island and its bell tower is well known for having a tilt of several degrees because of its pliable ground.
Our images are printed using premium K3 print technology on Hahnemühle Fine Art Torchon matt photographic paper. The special feature of the light white paper (285 g/m²) is its material: 100% alpha-cellulose defines the characteristically coarse texture. It gives your image a timeless, true-to-the-original charisma with a 3D effect. The hand-made style paper is highly water resistant and the use of premium K3 Epson prints ensures luminous colours and deep blacks for at least 100 years.
Textile print on stretcher frame – a fabric print using modern technology
Your image will be printed on fabric in razor-sharp quality and with brilliant colours and with its subtly textured surface; it transforms any photo into a unique gallery work that is full of life. During the thermal sublimation process, the colours are completely evaporated into the material. The resolution of up to 720 dpi and the enlarged CMYK colour spectrum allows accurate colour reproduction with clear contours. We only use textiles that are free of harmful substances and that have been awarded the internationally recognised Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certification. Your image is mounted on the solid wood stretcher frame in its true form using only, high quality stretcher frames made of solid wood. The spruce wood comes from German suppliers and is sourced from sustainable forests. To give the stretcher frames permanent protection from losing shape, we triple reinforce the corners under the textile print using metal braces. When mounting on the stretcher frame we avoid using wedges – the frame is so stable that you won't need to loosen or tighten it at a later stage and it will arrive ready to hang.
