‘Trees and Cuttings’ is being re-presented in various locations around the landscaped gardens at Cheeseburn and will include:
– two 4.5m high ceramic ‘trees’ in the Walled Garden
– a collection of ceramic cuttings in the Potting Shed
Paul Scott is well known for his research into ceramics and print, and has a particular interest in transferwares. These blue willows and landscape patterns mechanized by the Staffordshire potteries in the early 19th century will be a familiar sight in kitchens around the country. The traditional blue and white is used to great effect by Scott in this exhibition, and sits notably in amongst the greenery of the landscaped grounds.
