Video: Phil Eglin - Carving out a future
Phil Eglin’s irreverent ceramics are evidence of his immersion in history, which exists in tandem with his fascination with contemporary logos, plastic bags and rude gestures. Eglin talks us through works in progress, and we also get a glimpse of Eglin's work on show at the V&A alongside the medieval pieces that inspired them.
