Boise Baren Glass Barens, In Stock. Beautiful and Useful, For Printmaking and Printmakers


Our current selection of Boise Barens are available thru our Etsy store, here ( They’ve all been produced with a SPRINGTIME palette of colors.

As you may (or may not) know, I’m a printmaker too. Here’s my latest linocut reduction portrait. It’s a picture of Martial Arts Master Teacher Taky Kimura, who was a friend of Bruce Lee and actually took over Lee’s school when Lee moved to California from Seattle.


Of course, I use a Boise Baren to make my own prints, both a small and large one when needed, to properly press that ink into the paper.
