Lisa Sheppy has just completed her AHRC funded doctoral study at the Centre for Print Research, UWE, Bristol. Her PhD titled, ‘An industrial craft reinstated: a printmaker’s perspective on tissue transferware’, was designed to investigate an industrial craft, tissue transfer, expanding the field of the printed image within contemporary ceramics. The primary goal of this study was to design and make accessible a new innovative method of producing printed ceramics and future proof a craft process under threat of obsolescence.
