This print captures the shimmering light at the end of the day and companionable friendship.
A hand made image drawn onto a metal plate and etched by acid. The cleaned plate is then covered in oil based ink and wiped clean leaving behind the ink in the etched lines and marks. The paper is placed damp on top of the metal plate, covered in a soft felt blanket and then wound through a heavy press. The blanket allows the paper to be pushed into the grooves and the ink is lifted out of the grooves to form the image.
This is a unique print.
