Both striking and exquisitely beautiful, the installation will complement and enhance the monumental architecture of the space. Visible from the Grand Entrance of the Museum through an opening in the gallerys floor, the installation will be a landmark commission that both celebrates the collection and marks the occasion of the opening of the new Ceramics Galleries at the V&A in September 2009.
