Since 1957 the Lovell telescope been probing and investigating the depths of space, a symbol and monument  of our wish to understand the universe It still remains one of the biggest and most powerful radio telescopes in the world investigating the depths of space gathering information that’s was completely unknown and undreamed of when it was originally created.

The bowl shaped form and strong linea structure  intrigued me and gave me the ideal subject to begin my early interest into manmade forms. The Lovell Telescope offered me the idealt synthesis between form and function. Etching became the most logical process for me to record the intricate  and complex structure biting, drawing and stopping out continuously evolving and changing the plate surface.
