Original hand-printed etchings by Paulina Cassidy.

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

Paulina's etchings are drawn onto a copper plate and printed on a manual press. She 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.'
