Taking inspiration from the patterns of fields and hedgerows, this image brings together many of the key elements in my work - trees, fields, hills, sky and a human dwelling.
This etching was created on two copper plates - tiny grooves and pits were made on each using a variety of resists and ferric chloride. Both plates are inked up in several colours then wiped back carefully before being printed onto damp paper on a traditional etching press (a bit like a mangle if you can remember mangles!) One plate is printed then removed and the second plate is printed on the paper over the top of the first. The plates are inked and printed by hand for every print in the edition. It comes in an acid-free window mount, cellophane wrapped and is carefully flat-packed in a strong cardboard box.
