Event schedule details

Saturday 29 June


Event location details

Ceramics Studio, Gallery 143, Level 4


Sam Bakewell’s practice centres around a belief in clay’s capacity to mirror the subconscious and its cyclical role as a material linking us back to the earth. Exploring the V&A's collection of ceramic wares by the Martin Brothers, Bakewell hopes to concentrate on the dark nature of the work and its links to the gothic romanticism of the 1900’s. Drop in to the studio to see Sam at work and ask questions.
