These etchings are part of a body of work in which the seed pods of the Kurrajong Fruit are the principal motif. In these prints, the five barrelled, tough and leathery bodies of the seeds are disconnected from the core. Instead of zinc steel is used for these etchings. As well as the seed pods, the etching paper is torn apart and the segments are run through the press several times, each responding to the others until a balance is reached.
