Burleigh Factory Shop

By Rob Pointon

Burleigh Factory Shop

This piece was produced to decorate the Middleport Factory for HRH Prince of Wales visit in October 2011 to celebrate the beginning of the renovation. The Princes Regeneration Trust have purchased the buildings to ensure the conservation of this historic pottery factory. I had the honour of a third meeting with the Prince and talked through my time at his school – The Prince’s Drawing School in London. Burleigh shall remain as tenants of the factory producing their famous tissue transfer ware. The intense pattern of this ware all around in the factory shopis a strong enjoyable subject for an impressionist painting.
