This is an copper etching of the magnificent font cover by Grinling Gibbons which you can go and see anytime at All Hallow by the Tower church in London. Using Copper plate is always a bit of a treat. It is the hardest metal we etch which means that you can achieve finest lines and that is rather satisfying.

Etching : 'Colonel Clitherow’s war horse'

I was visiting Yorkshire. One tabby cat was standing alone on this old gravestone of Colonel Clitherow's war horse and refused to move from there.

The inscription says:

IN MEMORY OF
A GALLANT
HORSE
BRED IN HOLDERNESS AND
HUNTED HERE HE LANDED
IN FRANCE 15 AUGUST 1914
MONS LE CATEAU AISNE
YPRES THE SOMME CAMBRAI
HE KNEW THEM ALL
AND NOW LIES HERE

It was a beautiful evening and rather moving moment that stuck in my head. The garden was full of Autumn colours which was even more golden with bright orange evening light.
