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.'
