To the people of the potteries, pictures of our local heritage in and around Stoke-on-Trent evoke memories which often produce a cascade of mixed emotions. Now that soot, grime and smoke are things of the past, even they can possibly seem to have been endowed with a touch of magic, colouring the landscape with a surreal, soft sepia tone.

An Introduction to our range of Gicleé Prints
Gicleé Printing is a relatively new computerised printing technique. It is unique to fine art publishing, such as ours here at the studios of Hood and Broomfield, where all work takes place in-house. Using only the highest quality watercolour paper with its special ink receptive coating, together with the finest light resistant inks, our country pictures manifest an exceptional depth of colour and tonal quality you would only expect to see in an original painting.

Each picture is printed individually, inspected, trimmed and pressed, the artist will then examine each print before stamping the ( H B ) hallmark, numbering and signing, it finally goes to our framing studio for completion.
