The art piece before you is hand etched. The boards used are made of a white clay with a coating of black ink. Each piece is scratched into the board with an xacto knife, the image made of thousands of scratches.
This artwork consists of a 5x5 inch board within a 10x10 inch matted black frame. The etching is coated with a UV and dust resistant spray, and so can be displayed without the glass if desired (glass fits within frame behind art in this case).
