Acclaimed conceptual artist Bruce McLean debuts a new body of work titled ‘Garden Ware’ in collaboration with Stoke on Trent ceramics brand 1882 Ltd, in the V&A Ceramics Galleries. The collection includes one-off earthenware creations by McLean, including vases, bowls and platters.

The display will be accompanied by a hand-drawn map, designed by McLean and Oliver Watson, former Chief Curator of the Ceramics & Glass Department, that will guide visitors through the Ceramics Galleries to find examples of ‘Good Pots’ as selected by McLean and Watson.
