New Direction

A couple of years ago I went on a photo etching workshop. I particularly wanted to learn how to etch onto silver, and created some cuff bracelets that I'm very proud of. Last year, I tried etching fractal images onto copper sheet and hand coloured them. I was pleased with the result, and sold the one that I submitted to an exhibition.

A lot of people have commented on my fractals when I've shown them locally. One remark from several people was that they liked the images but wished that they were a bit messier, a bit less perfect. So the next logical step was to use the copper plaques as etching plates. After another workshop to learn how to use a printing press, I produced a small series of fractal etchings.

Hi Angelo,
I'm well, but no holidays this year, alas. Usually we spend a couple of weeks in France, but money is too short this year.

How are you - summer must be a really good time for your swordsmanship demonstrations.

Best wishes,

Hello Mary, summer in France is too hot temperatures. I did not make swordmanship demonstrations this summer. Because of personnal reasons. But hope to do some in the future. Best Wishes.
