Process

Scratchbords by Ampersand are hard boards covered in a layer of Porcelain Clay and then India Ink. When I etch away at the ink, the image appears in the clay. If I like, I can add colored inks at the end of the process. It is a slow, precise path, layering line over line, and color over color. I always tell people that it takes a lot of artistic courage to approach a medium like this since I do not sketch on them nor erase. Unlike traditional etching where prints are made, each one of these creations are an original piece of art.
