Engraving is a technique that has been in use for hundreds of years. It is a time-consuming processes by which a metal plate is incised with with thousands of scores created by a chiseling tool called a burin. Ink is then spread over the plate and wiped away, leaving only the grooves filled. Next paper is pressed onto the metal sheet and an image is printed.
Our tribute to this beautifully complicated process is our Cloud Engraving Wall Art. Reproduced from an original engraving from the 1800s, captures every intricate detail of a single cumulus cloud.
