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