'Ceramics Points of View' is the result of a collaboration between The National Electronic and Video Archive of the Crafts and the V&A. A range of people were asked for their responses to the same ten objects from the V&A's 20th century ceramics collection.

On this page you can discover the six people's responses to 'Teacup and saucer', made around 1924 by Bernard Howell Leach (1897-1979). Simply choose one of the people below to see their response.

Here the work of Bernard Leach is critiqued by Alison Britton, Neil Brownsword, Emmanuel Cooper, Claire Curneen, Tanya Harrod and Oliver Watson in the following videos.
