On Sunday we visited the V&A. I wanted to see the Alison Britton display Content and Form, and the contemporary portraiture display Facing History.

Both were thought-provoking and enjoyable, and delightful (for us) in their unpopularity: they were two still areas amongst the general brouhaha. Indeed the sixth floor housing the ceramics collection is such a rewarding area to visit for anyone who has the slightest attraction to pottery. Once again we sighed with the longing for another lifetime to learn about such a fascinating craft.
The whole museum is a vast black hole of tempting objects which delight the eye and pull on one's curiosity. And, having been intrigued by Margaret Cooter's photographs, I was delighted to catch a glimpse of the disturbed cast room.
