Out - The new ceramics gallery at the V & A

Recently I had the pleasure of listening to Edmund de Waal at the V & A. The new ceramics gallery has opened and his commissioned installation is possible one of the most beautiful things I have seen. I haven't put a picture up as it needs to be seen in person ( look up or you'll miss it ).

It is the highlight of the new galleries, which are in themselves really, really beautiful. Everything is there - from Chinese porcelain, handmade ceramics by Bernard Leach to eighteenth-century French porcelain.

Light floods in and everything just seems a little more magical. I love ceramics, both for their visual beauty and for the reason that they exist - to eat and drink, and most importantly to share.
It would be a wonderful way to lose yourself for a few hours - don't forget the V & A is open until 10pm on a Friday, which would be a rather delightful way to start the weekend.
