  1. kevin petrie,

    i was wondering what techniques you use when printing onto ceramic and where you get inspiration. ive looked at some of your work and am being inspired as i am interested in printmaking and was wondering if you focus on a theme and see where it take you or if you already have ideas that are influenced by someone or something.

    • Sorry for the delayed response. In the past I used a water based transfer printing method developed through my PhD at the University of the West of England Bristol. I am mainly inspired by drawing directly from life and try to fix the experience of the drawing through ceramics and glass.
