Meet Annabel Hood
Annabel uses traditional surface decoration techniques, here she uses hand engraving. This technique involves removing pieces of metal with a small sharp tool. Hand engraving can be used in a variety of ways that allows the light to reflect off the surface dramatically. Here Annabel is working on her upcoming series reflecting on current climate issues and glacier melt.
