Etchings

I make etchings on copper plates. These are created using an acid to bite into the plate where I want the lines or darker areas to be. Then I put sticky etching ink on the plate and wipe it. The ink sticks in the places where the acid bit the plate. I print the plate on a hand-operated etching press, which has heavy rollers to squeeze the ink onto the paper. I work at East London Printmakers, in Stepney, east London.

My etchings are for sale. Please contact me to find out what’s available. Mostly they are about A5 size, priced at £5 + postage and packing. Many of them are printed to work as greetings cards. They also work as pictures. These are all hand-done prints as described above, not digital reproductions.
