Nathalie Kalbach | Powerhouse | Foam Stamp
Inspired by the Stroll Through the Hood rubber stamp set, this foam stamp features the gorgeous yet abandoned Powerhouse still found in the Downtown neighborhood of Jersey City. This dilapidated structure, surrounded by new development, reminds us of an industrial city of the past. Add a sense of history and a bit of architecture to your cards, canvases, mixed media projects, and art journal pages. Interested in layering? This foam stamp is an inverse of the Powerhouse rubber stamp design and of a very similar size - it can be used to create an offset print when used in unison.
These stamps are inspired by places and objects in Nathalie’s own neighborhood of Jersey City, as well as by her blog series Stroll Through the Hood. She gathers inspiration as she sketches and photographs on her strolls, and is attracted to the historic architecture, forgotten landmarks, and the street art that she passes along the way. These original hand sketched stamp designs are reminiscent of things you might find in towns and cities across the US.
This stamp measures approximately 5” w x 4 ¼” h
