It has been good to spend the day undertaking the etching induction and to work on my first etching plate:

I am looking forward to continuing the induction and process tomorrow and hope to make my first prints. I am considering printing an edition [of say 30]; the individual which then be used to make a log to record each of the ongoing visits to the same stretch of beach to gather the detritus from human activity. These could form a work in their own right, or could be used as labels for each collection of finds. If it were the work I would consider whether to bind it as a log book or to display prints on the wall.
