Smithfield Pottery Original Linocut


Add to basket

A three-stage reduction linocut of the former Smithfield Pottery in Stoke-on-Trent. It is on white Zerkall paper, and using Cranfield water-based relief ink. The image is 10cm x 12cm, (roughly A6) and the paper is 19 x 26.5cm. Each print is hand-inked and hand-printed, so each is slightly different giving them each a unique quality. As this is a reduction print, the lino plate is gradually cut away during the process so that no more prints can be made.

I love the shapes of the historic bottle ovens in Stoke-on-Trent, the major hub of the UK pottery industry during the 19th and 20th centuries. These ovens were phased out when the Clean Air Act was brought in, and most were demolished, but over 40 still remain around the city, and I find them a fascinating subject for my work as each is a slightly different shape, and in different states of repair and surroundings. The area around Smithfield has recently been redeveloped, but the bottle oven and building itself had been previously restored and has been used as offices and a restaurant over the years.
