'Sunstrike' Homeprint's new UV light box.

The 'Sunstrike' UV lightbox has been designed and manufactured by me to meet the demand for portable lightboxes that can manage multiple solarplate and silk screen UV exposure. A simple on off switch, generous size 620mm x 400mm, electronic balast (for speed in hitting the appropriate UV level) and cheapness of replacement lamps are all features of this design.

Ngati Taepa, artist.

Ngati Taepa worked in the Homeprint Sudio with me to create this solarplate. It was a 12" x 14" plate and was used to create blind embossings on dampened art paper and used to make a series of coloured koru images for exhibition. One of these relief prints was used as an illustration on the front cover of an issue of 'Art New Zealand'.
