Limited Edition (of 6 each) Etched Prints at Dazzle@Dovecot 2016 Contemporary Jewellery Exhibition
We’re into the last few days for our exhibition, ‘Edinburgh – Our City’, which includes a wide range of etchings and prints for sale showing our take on our home city, Edinburgh. It runs until Monday the 29th August, open daily from 10:00 until 18:00.
In this post, we are highlighting Misty Meadows and Clearing Haar, our limited edition etchings created by Paul, who studied Toyobo & Photopolymer at the Edinburgh Printmakers’ Studio. He learnt to turn a digital image into an etched plate and then create prints by hand from the plate. He has created limited editions of 6 each of these 2 etchings. One each has been hand-framed by a local framer in a box mount which gives a slight floating effect. They are also available unframed and mounted.
The limited edition etching, Misty Meadows, was taken in the Meadows last November – while everybody else was complaining about the cold, damp and misty weather, Paul was making the most of its photographic opportunities – there’s no such thing as bad weather for a photographer.
Lynn used to work in St Andrew’s House and often took advantage of its central position with many iconic views. Clearing Haar, the other limited edition etching, was taken from the balcony at the back of St Andrew’s House as the sun set on a misty Edinburgh capturing the diffuse light and making the roof of the station look more like sea than something solid.
