The V&A is a fabulous place.
In the ceramic section alone I must have spent two hours and now need to go back to focus on selected pieces and sketch. It is vast.
These first three pieces I love for their surface treatments. Beautifully balanced shape, colour, pattern fill and rhythmic lines.
Contrast of crystal glaze and matt black. Rust burning into edges.
As I struggle with 3D I think this appealed because I thought I might be able to manage a similarly simple object. We'll see.
