In the mid-18th century, English potters in the stafford region developed a decorative technique called "transferware." The process started with an engraved copper plate similar to those used for making paper engravings. The plate was used to print the pattern on tissue paper, then the tissue paper transfered the wet ink to the ceramic surface. The ceramic was then fired in a low temperature kiln to fix the pattern. Before transfer printing, ceramics were hand painted, which was a laborious and costly process. See "Transferware". Wikipedia. Retrieved 2016-08-13.
