Burleigh applies technology to tissue print

An academic-industry partnership with CFPR combining digital print technology with traditional underglaze tissue printing

Burgess & Leigh Ltd is the last remaining UK factory producing ceramic tableware using the traditional underglaze tissue transfer process. Burleigh’s distinctive intaglio prints of heated underglaze ink, or ‘colour’, are generated from hand engraved copper rollers. Though beautiful, hand engraving in this format is unfortunately a vanishing craft which makes the rollers costly and time consuming to produce.
