V&A Print



No hesitation here when the V&A asked us to join their Cherry on the Cake III project. Not only do they provide ceaseless inspiration to great swathes of the world's population through a programme of events, exhibitions and a peerless permanent collection, but the gift shop's pretty good too.

This year Paper forms the broad thematic backdrop on which 12 artists further pursue some museological object or aspect of interest. Our contribution focuses—perhaps predictably—on the newly housed and utterly exhaustive array of Ceramics.



As subtly overlaid halftones can't really be achieved with our current silkscreen set-up, printing was outsourced to Manymono, where Hugh remains confident of the Risograph's creative potential.

Pompom, the Potter's Pet is available in a Risographic edition of 200 via the V&A and can be viewed alongside works from Aardvark, James Brown, Fred Butler, Nina Chakrabarti, D-BROS, Ed Kluz, Angie Lewin, Charlotte Mann, Tom Martin, Rob Ryan and Chisato Tamabayashi at the V&A Shop or, better still, visit the museum!
