Dr Lisa Sheppy
"An artist's exploration of the historic technique of tissue transfer-printing on ceramics"

Tissue transfer-printing on ceramics was a revolutionary technique pioneered at Dr Wall’s Worcester porcelain manufactory. It enabled the mass re-production of elaborate and fashionable artist engravings on porcelain items for a wider range of people. Lisa Sheppy brings an artist’s and printmaker’s eye to the history and possibility of this technique. She presents findings and practical explorations from her PhD studies including research in the Museum’s collections and archives.

THE WOMAN WHO SAVED WEDGWOOD

In 1909, Daisy Makeig-Jones was hired by the Wedgwood firm in Staffordshire, England, to decorate pottery. She would go on to develop the “Fairyland” luster pattern, which combined dazzling iridescent glazes with motifs from fairytales and would serve to revitalize the Wedgwood brand.
