New Work - Digital Engravings ...

taadahhh!   I've been working on this 'new' technique for about eight weeks now - and it's way more complex that I thought it would be before I started (!)  Even Catherine's stopped rolling her eyes at me as I dash back and forth from my tiny workshop showing her bits of scraped indecipherable metal - I think, she thinks I've finally lost it.
