Title: "Kingyo" (Goldfish)
Size: 5 1/2" x 5 1/2"
Price: $150 ( unframed )
Notes: Even though the line work is all engraved, I chose to list the medium as "intaglio" as I also relied on some other techniques to realize the plate. The area around the fish was etched in acid, leaving the fish as a raised embossment. To print, the plate was first inked in yellow. The black was applied with a brayer, mixing a "relief" print technique as well, then printed.
The piece was created for a specific show themed "Sealife." My thought process was fairly straightforward: What would a Fabergé ornamental goldfish look like?
"Kingyo" of the title simply means "goldfish" in Japanese.
