Artist's description:

Over centuries, storming seas threw shards of flint up against the coast of Suffolk, England, forming a 10 mile long peninsula called Orford Ness. Today its' shifting mass comprises shingle, tidal rivers, mud flats, lagoons, grass and marshland, and is a conservation area under the care of the National Trust. For most of the twentieth century it had been a place for testing the design of bombs. Radio and radar were also developed and utilised there. Nowadays one can travel across by boat to that eerie and beautiful place and designated paths steer the visitor around the dangers of remnant explosives.

Technical note
This print is pulled from a relief plate cut from rubber, a variation of letterpress, akin to linoprinting. The completed edition made 7 copies. The print is on a sheet measuring 11x13 inches (280x330). The image has a two and a half inch (62mm) margin all round with an extra half inch at the bottom. I can trim the print to your order if required. All materials are of high quality and should present no keeping difficulty.

Materials used:

oil-based printing inks and cartridge paper
