Part of the Mark Hearld for Tate range, a decorative earthenware plate produced by Burleigh and printed with a design entitled 'On The Wing' featuring birds of the British countryside that are so distinctive in Hearld's designs.
Established in 1851, Burleigh is one of the oldest original Victorian factories manufacturing pure English earthenware now left in the country and remains today world-famous for its fine craftsmanship and high quality ceramics. Using ball clay from Devon and china clay from Cornwall, the factory is now rare in the skilful techniques and traditional manufacturing processes it uses, which include intricate underglaze transfer printing.
Plate measures 25 x 1cm
Dishwasher and microwave safe.
Available exclusively from Tate Online Shop and the Tate Britain shop, the Mark Hearld for Tate range was commissioned to celebrate the wealth of creative talent in the UK and to help promote and support British manufacturing and the specialist skills that go with it.
The range consists of a limited edition lithographic print printed by the renowned Curwen Press, ceramics produced by 150 year old pottery specialists Burleigh, as well as a greetings card set, a pigeon post letter, printed tote bag, embossed notebooks and a cushion cover. All items in the range are made in the UK to the highest standards and with close attention to detail.
