Janice Bond

Inspired by my original drawings of natural intricacies, I am the sole creator of my etchings from inception to completion. Etching is a method of intaglio (incised) printmaking. I begin by coating a copper plate with acid-resistant ground. I draw the image onto the ground with a sharp pen to expose the metal beneath. Acid etches (from the Dutch etzen `to eat') the exposed metal and I then rub ink into the incised, bitten lines. Absorbent paper is placed on the plate and both are then passed through a press. The resulting image is a mirror image of the original drawing. Because I hand paint all of my etchings with watercolor, each is a unique and original work of art.
