This print is inspired by mochaware: colourful slipware decoration that was produced in great quantities in Stoke-on-Trent from the 1780s onwards. Used in pubs and taverns across the land, it was unpretentious and utilitarian pottery. A little like etching (a printing equivalent), each and every piece was handmade and unique. Dead Wood nods to these humble origins with its familiar tree-like patterns common to mochaware. It also acknowledges the hopeless incompetence of our UK government in the year 2022, with another nod to the great political satirist James Gillray.
