The safety lamp used by miners both before and after the introduction of electrical lighting into coal mines, is an iconic piece of industrial history. Originally designed in the 19th Century as a source of light that would not ignite the flammable gases always present when coal seams are worked, the later developments were robust and effective. This example lives on my hearth.
This is a hand printed copy of my own design, drawn and carved on lino by me. The image is printed on Daler Rowney Canford A4 white paper, using water based black ink.
It is not a digital or other reproduction. Although this is an open-ended edition, I have signed and titled each copy. Thanks for viewing!
