Etchings of various sizes
2020

These prints all developed during my PhD research into the overlaps between sculpture, print and processes in nature. Much of my recent work has focused on the collecting and curating activities of the xenophora carrier snail, the production of synthetic rock and slag through metal casting, and the voids and channels created by the quarrying process.
