Several years ago I participated in a printmaking project, Prints of the Periodic Table of Elements.  Organized by Jenn Schmitt of Massachusetts.

All of the prints are now on exhibit in Philadelphia at the Chemical Heritage Foundation: "Elemental Matters:  Artists Imagine Chemistry."

Wish I could go!
Here's a link to some photos she took of the exhibit.

I requested and was granted element 42 Molybdenum.

Those of you who know me well will know why I picked this one.  It was irresistible to me for several reasons and I'm so pleased I was able to represent it.

This is a linoleum cut, hand tinted.  I only made a few and sent the best one to Jenn.


  1. I keep singing that Tom Lehrer song about it

  2. I think it's great that the show keeps in circulation. I just wish we who participated could have a copy of the whole set. Had it been an ordinary exchange, that would have happened. Oh well. I'm still waiting for the book. ;-]
