The Boise Baren Company is a project designed by Tom Callos of We make glass barens for printmaking and printmakers, whether for wood block, lino or linocut, or any form of relief printing done by hand.

Printmaking Gifts and Tools for Printmakers, from The Boise Baren Company

These two wonderful handblown glass barens from —are called Crystal Blue and Monet’s Garden. I use them in my own linocut printmaking process —and whether you make relief prints from Lino, woodblock, or some other product, the primary reason to own one of these barens is because they’re luxuriously beautiful. They work like magic —and feel good in one’s hand (Ok, the “magic” thing, might be over the top —but they make the work feel…special, for sure).
