Ceramic inspiration at the V & A.

Contemporary ceramic heads by Stephen Dixon (born '57): terra Cotta, stoneware & porcelain with glazes & transfer printed techniques. I've spent the day in the Ceramics section of the Victoria & Albert Museum in South Kensington, London
Such incredible work by ceramicists from many countries stretching over the centuries. 

It will give me endless inspiration and ideas for glazes, designs and finishes. I took loads of notes, sketches and photos (no problems with taking shots) for reference for looking up further details on the museum website. 
Have set myself the task of creating a ceramic head of husband, Louis. 
I'll take photos of his head from various angles in case he gets fed up with sitting.

Lustreware from Spain. Tin glazed earthenware painted with lustres. The artist used lines of wax resist to separate different coloured glazes.Ceramic bowl made in Iran 1150-1200. Turquoise glaze is used over carved black slip.Japanese stoneware vase 1810. The relief bird & branches wrap the vase. Painted in overglaze enamels incl gold.
