Original hand-printed etchings by Paulina Fae (aka Paulina Cassidy)

For collectors of traditional printmaking.

Etching is a process of incising an image onto a metal plate, known as an intaglio process. It is one of the original forms of printmaking dating back to the fourteenth century.

This etching was drawn onto a copper plate (drypoint technique) and printed on a manual press. The artist inks and hand-pulls each original etching in a small limited edition. The process is repeated for each individual print. Due to the handmade nature of printmaking, the result is that each print is slightly different and one-of-a-kind, hence the term 'original print.'

Created on heavyweight etching paper using intaglio ink. Each original print in the edition is signed, titled, and dated.

Due to time-constraints and a need to focus on new projects, Polly is no longer producing etchings. The etchings seen here were created in 2016-2018, and limited stock remains.
