As one of my favorite museums in London, I frequently visit the Victoria & Albert Museum. Up until last week, I didn’t know there was a ceramic wing, let alone a space dedicated to contemporary ceramics. This room focuses on working ceramicists, displaying their unique approach to the art of fired and glazed clay. Here are three works that immediately caught my eye due to their shape, color and subject.
