The Canals of Burano, Italy Linocut Print

Burano, Italy Block Print

Burano is an island off the coast of Italy that belongs to the same lagoon as Venice. Like Venice, the town is accessible by boat, and can be traveled via its main canals. Burano is best known for two things: its intricate handmade lace work and brightly colored homes.

We took a day trip here from Venice and had so much fun walking around the little town. Here are a few snapshots from our time there:

Burano was hands-down one of my favorite towns because those colorful buildings make such a perfect print! I couldn’t wait to come home and get to work on this one…in fact, I’d love to make even more Burano prints! For now, this one is hanging in the gallery wall in my office where it inspires me as I work.
