Michael Lloyd: Twelve Vessels of Life, Love and Death
31 October 2012 - 7 July 2013
This is a collection of 12 recently commissioned vessels from patrons, friends, curators and fellow makers who were asked to nominate a time of year that had a particular resonance for them. A silver vessel chased with designs drawn from the natural worlds has been created for that individual and their month. Throughout this project, Michael Lloyd has sought to emphasise the relationship that exists between man and the natural world through the eloquent medium of the carefully fashioned object.
Complementing our permanent collections, there are many free temporary displays around the V&A. They range in size from a single case to a room.
