Sam Bakewell: V&A Ceramic Artist

Visit our ceramic artist in residence in their V&A studio

Sam Bakewell’s practice centres around a belief in clay’s capacity to mirror the subconscious, and its cyclical role as a material linking us back to the earth. Exploring our collection of ceramic wares by the Martin Brothers, Bakewell hopes to concentrate on the dark nature of the work and its links to the gothic romanticism of the 1900’s.
