Westmoreland House Memorial Mug – Stokes Croft China

Westmoreland House Memorial Mug

£10.00

Description

Even before Burning Candy painted the giant skull and crocodile on its upper stories, the gutted hulk of Westmoreland House was a symbol of the dilapidation of Stokes Croft. This very neglect by land-bankers and property owners is why the PRSC, graffiti artists, squatters and other alternative & creative types adopted the area, and how it came to be the Cultural Quarter and Outdoor Gallery we know and love today. The distinctive and always changing walls of Westmoreland House have been one of the neighbourhood's main attractions for almost a decade.

This beautiful design was drawn by Bristol artist object… and is based on a limited edition screenprint printed in Stokes Croft by the PRSC. It depicts many aspects of this iconic building's history and use since its willful dereliction, and celebrates the layers of graffiti which have built up on its walls over the years. 

At Stokes Croft China, our resident artists carefully combine and arrange the designs here in our studio, ensuring that no two items are the same. Every piece is uniquely decorated with a mixture of rare and modern ceramic transfers. Ceramic transfers in their original guise would be applied sparingly to each piece, but here we let them run riot in true Bristol fashion.
