CraftSanity Podcast Episode 137 (part 1): The story of Eric Hoffman, owner and creator of Spofford Press

BIG Miles Davis

This podcast is about Eric Hoffman, a kind printmaker I met on Instagram while attempting to soak up all I can from more experienced printmakers creating inspiring work. A 35-year-old artist, family man and gifted storyteller with a jovial laugh.

When he’s not answering questions about his technique and equipment on Instagram, Eric is making a go of it pulling impressive prints in his home studio in Warwick, Rhode Island. The level of detail in his “Miles Davis” print for a relief engraving is something you really have to see in person to fully appreciate.

Tune in to the podcast to find out what happened after Eric decided to follow his heart and change his college major, and learn what he did during the time that passed before he took a leap of faith and launched his handmade dream armed with ink, carving tools and a belief that he could make it work.

On part one of this two-part story, you’ll get to meet Eric and learn more about the darling, little guy pictured above. Part two will be posted in the coming days. Leave your comments below and be sure to go visit Eric on the web.
