I was invited by the Devon Guild of Craftsmen at Riverside Mill Bovey Tracey to give an address for the opening of a wonderful enamelling exhibition Playing with Fire. Enamellers in the UK responded to the invitation to make proposals for new work in enamel and the jury of Elizabeth Turrell, Evangeline Long, Simon Fraser and myself had the difficult task of selecting from the proposals submitted. We awarded prizes to two of the exhibitors, Helen Carnac and Jessica Turrell.
Artists in Residence at the V&A
With an exciting and ever-changing programme of artists and designers, there’s never a dull moment in our residency studios. We will give you an exclusive look into what it’s like to be in residence at the world’s greatest museum of art and design.
We have a thriving and exciting programme of artists in residence here at the Museum, with at least two practitioners inhabiting our studios at any given time.
Here we show the process of being an artist or designer in residence here at the V&A, with behind-the-scenes insights and stories from Residency Co-ordinator, Laura Southall, and the artists themselves.
