In Focus Tour: Ceramic Perspectives
Join V&A resident artists Bridget Harvey and Sam Bakewell for this dynamic tour of ceramics across the V&A's collections. The tour looks at the interplay between creativity and intersecting factors such as repair, autobiographical influences and mental health. Guests can also visit Bridget and Sam’s V&A artist studios following the tour and on Saturday 11 May.
Maker in Residence Bridget Harvey is using her residency to examine the relationship between repair and the museum. Bridget explains various ceramic repair processes and their motivations, focusing on objects collected and borrowed by the museum which display this craft. In contrast, Ceramic Artist in Residence Sam Bakewell is using the V&A's collections to question the links between mental health and creativity. Sam talks through the objects he curated as part of the residency display case, and gives context to the makers’ lives behind them.
