It was the September selection for the Inspired By Reading Book Club, hosted by Andrew Thornton of Allegory Gallery.
The story is told by two narrators on a Welsh lake - Tilda, a contemporary ceramicist and Seren, a witch and shaman in Celtic times.
Tilda finds what she believes is a bracelet with a Celtic carving of 3 dogs and 3 hares in a circle - seemingly chasing each other.
I knew I wanted to, somehow, incorporate that image in my design.
After much research, I settled on a Celtic image I wanted to use.
NEW TECHNIQUE ALERT!
Then heat transferred the image onto 18 gauge copper and put it into the etching solution for a few hours.
The middle image was printed twice, resulting in a heavy build up of toner.
*Lesson learned* Less toner is actually better and gives a clearer impression.
