The Special Relationship, Staffordshire and the US

New American Scenery in the UK

In December 2018, Arts Council England confirmed grant support for Paul’s research The Special Relationship, Staffordshire and the US. The project builds on Alturas funded New American Scenery research in the United States since 2015. It involves investigations into Staffordshire archives of original transferware material at Wedgwood, the Spode Museum Trust, Burleigh and the Potteries Museum & Art Gallery.

Paul will also develop a New American Scenery related exhibition for UK tour from 2020. The show will open on 4 March 2020 at the Bowes Museum in Barnard Castle.
