"Decay" captures the last remaining blast furnace at the old British Steel works at Redcar in Cleveland, England. Using drypoint without any additional colour, I hoped to convey the sadness in the dereliction of this once great industrial beast. The blast furnace has been completely demolished since I visited in the Summer of 2022 to photograph and sketch the site.
