Star of Ephel Dúath

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

'Far above the Ephel Dúath in the West the night-sky was still dim and pale. There, peeping among the cloudwrack above a dark tor up in the mountains, Sam saw a white star twinkle for a while. The beauty of it smote his heart, as he looked up out of the forsaken land, and hope returned to him. For like a shaft, clear and cold, the thought pierced him that in the end the Shadow was only a small and passing thing: there was light and high beauty for ever beyond ist reach.' (JRR Tolkien, Return of the King)One of my first showable results in the fascinating technique of intaglio etching. Size: 10 x 10 cm, June 2005
