Overview

Deception: Ceramics and Imitation' looks at objects potters have always created to delight and surprise by deceiving the eye.

With virtuoso display pieces startling in their verisimilitude and luxurious imitations of silver, marble or gemstones, this display draws on the V&A's extensive ceramic collections to show some remarkable transformations.
