BEYOND BLUE Q&A from CFPR UWE Bristol on Vimeo.



Professor Stephen Hoskins and David Huson received funding from the Arts and Humanities Research Council for a project in collaboration with Burleigh Pottery, ‘Combining Digital Print Technologies with 18th century Under-glaze Ceramic Printing to retain an Industrial Heritage Process’. They have undertaken research on traditional copperplate engraving techniques combined with flexographic plate printing to create new methods of digitally engraved rollers.

The project aims to revive and modernise these methods, making them commercially viable
whilst retaining the original hand-engraved attributes. Hoskins and Huson have worked
with Burleigh to explore how the lengthy and prohibitively expensive process of hand
copper-plate and roller engraving can be circumvented by techniques developed by the
project to use digital technology to capture traditional designs and by creating new photopolymeric
plates for intaglio printing.

Charlotte Hodes and Paul Scott were awarded funding by Arts Council England for research
into the Spode Copper Plate Archive. Hodes and Scott are leading contemporary artists who
have long associations with the now extant Copeland/Spode company. Both explore the
language of printed decorative ceramics in their artwork and both have work in prominent
public collections including the Potteries Museum and V&A in London.

This project builds upon previous research Hoskins undertook in 2000, also funded by the AHRC: Reappraising the creative potential of underglaze ceramic transfer printing in the light of new technology
