Handmade Barens of Extraordinary Beauty

OK, you don’t actually have to be a FANATIC to love The Boise Baren glass baren, but it is, in all honesty, targeted at the printmaker who just loves beautiful printmaking tools. For the linocut or woodblock artist who prints by hand, well…the weight, the look, the handle, all of it —is PERFECT.

We make each one by hand. To see what we currently have for sale, visit our ETSY site here:

I’m a printmaker myself —and I’ve not seen or used a more gorgeous baren than The Boise Baren.
