On Sunday I spent a lovely afternoon at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.
I was supposed to be going to see the Beatrix Potter exhibit on the 5th floor but got sidetracked by the wrought iron, metalwork and recently opened ceramics galleries :)
We also had an amazing meal in the beautiful cafe (some google pics here)
Here are a few highlights from the trip
I love the life-like poses of these figure, the bright colours and extreme expressions on their faces.
I wonder what these bowls were used for…
I wish all door locks were are beautiful as this.. life would be so much prettier :)
The orange glaze on this ceramic set was very striking
Some beautiful keys
I first saw a table set like this at the National Maritime Museum and fell in love with it..
I’m not sure how the white foliage was created on this vase but it’s truly stunning!
The magnificent Hereford screen was designed by Frances Skidmore and was constructed using a technique called electroformed copper, I have a flicker set dedicated to the screen here
