The exhibit ME@V&A mounted by internationally renowned ceramicist and scholar Michelle Erickson, presents works she created during her Ceramics Residency at the Victoria and Albert Museum, the world’s greatest museum of art and design, in London, from July to September, 2012. The V&A article announcing her residency acknowledged" Erickson’s worldwide recognition “for her mastery of lost ceramic arts during the age of exploration and colonialism. Her contemporary work makes use of these arcane ceramic techniques to create historical narratives about political, social, and environmental issues – both past and present".
