Etchings

Sarah Cowley - Artist -Harriet-Goes-to-Heaven

Etching as applied to print making is a six-hundred-year-old tradition. To make an etching there is a sequence of steps to follow with little room for variation; however, an artist’s desire to modify the techniques applied during the sequence of print making is what gives the etching its personality.

Experimenting with the technique is what I find most exciting. It is a continuous process of learning. I am never sure if what I have done is a good thing until I have ‘pulled the print.!’

Most often an edition of prints is made from an etched plate and each print is numbered and signed by the artist.
