Shooting a Leopard

The program will include:

  • A video tour of Michael Sack’s outstanding collection of Indian views on transferware and the source prints they were taken from.
  • A video presentation on transferware by Claire Blakey. Claire Blakey, Curator of Modern Decorative Arts, National Museums Scotland, presents an exploration of the collections of British transfer-printed ceramics in the National Museums Scotland. This includes Scottish wares made for export across the globe, as well as mid-19th century English pieces documenting the technical processes of transfer printing on pottery. Transferware themes shown include views of Scotland, Scot’s national literary figures and heroes, Canadian, Indian, and European views, Chinoiserie, and patterns made for the Southeast Asian export market.
  • Our annual Business Meeting to vote on new and renewing TCC Board members, hear reports on the club’s activities and status over the past year, and details about the 2024 Annual Meeting in Philadelphia.
