Shelfie - Manifold selects from the V&A collection

Manifold selects works from the the V&A Ceramics and Glass collections, on view in the galleries from the 20th March – 13th April.

Matthew Raw has been V&A Ceramic Artists in Residence for the last 6 months, and this April, hands the baton to Amy Hughes. To celebrate a whole year of Manifold at the V&A everyone in the studio has selected works from the Ceramics and Glass collections. More about the reasons behind our choices on Manifold's website.

I chose two objects, the first, Sea Sculpture, too fragile to move from it's current location but can be found in the World Ceramics Galleries, room 145, case 44, shelf 3. The second is this colossal fish sculpture. Alongside the choices i have included more fishes on dishes - an image of some fish 'drawings' i made from raw clay, and a postcard from the studio wall, a painting by William Scott.
