Above are the results of one of the areas covered, a hard ground copper etching with non toxic techniques.
Rosemary also introduce soft ground and sugar lift. ( I have yet to enhance this plate, in my own studio, with dry point and roulette techniques) So much to learn, explore and refine. The two days spent with an accomplished printmaker such as Rosemary Eagle has given me inspiration and a wonderful insight into the non toxic techniques of etching. I can't wait to explore the techniques in earnest in my own studio.
Rosemary's husband John Eagle is also a recognised artist in the ceramic area. His elegant forms feature beautiful glazes and he makes a mean Chocolate cake. ( not in his kiln of course!) http://johneagle.weebly.com
All in all they are a pretty inspiring couple and I thank them for their generosity.
