The V&A Collection 1

Inspiring spaces

While in London I spent a lot of time at The Victoria & Albert Museum. These visits were essential in understanding my experiences in Japan and China, and preparing for Turkey. I spent a lot of time within the V&A’s Islamic, Japanese and Chinese Collections, in particular cross checking terminology, history, techniques, pattern types and importantly spelling!

Minbar for Sultan Qa’itbay (1468-96)  and carved screen, V&A Collection
Ottoman Textiles Featuring L > R ‘The stripes of the Tiger’; ‘Velvet with 8-Point Stars’; and the much-loved Tulip all from the V&A Islamic Collection (1500 – 1600)

The Ironwork Collections, Print and Jewelry Collections also gave perspective to and reinforced much of my research to date. An inspiring experience!
