Lose the coffin reference… and the above screen-shot from my computer dictionary seems quite an apposite description for the current state of affairs. Recovering from long hours in the studio and emerging from the white winter onslaughts, I now feel able to catch up a little here with the woven lead images promised quite a while ago. These were developed after studying Egyptian plain weave linen fragments in the stores at the V&A. These detail photographs were taken by Jerry Hardman-Jones in Yorkshire and Peter Kelleher in the Museum’s photography department. I hope you enjoy the lead*en*ness of these images.

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.
