Inspired by her grandfather and great-grandfather, both butchers, loin lover Bethany Friedericks designed her own cutting chart when she couldn’t find a suitable one for her dining room. I definitely smell a pork product of some kind.

Project Description

I had been searching for a cool butcher chart for my dining room and when I couldn't find one I decided to make one! The name Otto-Matik comes from my grandfather and great-grandfather, both named Otto and who were both butchers. The Heritage Hog is the first in the series since I could use the knowledge I gained while ACTUALLY butchering a hog at a whole-hog breakdown class. I plan on continuing the series with different animals... a cow is in the works. I also plan on doing a few smaller letter-pressed versions in the future!

Production Lesson(s)

I wanted to make sure the effect of the butcher paper would remain visible through the flood of gray. Vahalla used a semi-transparent ink which turned out great! ”
