Breaking the mould

Artist Michael Eden uses cutting-edge computer technology to recreate the works of our most well-loved ceramicists. Watch an interview with Michael here.

The line of beauty

Victorian botanical illustrations intricately record the details of thousands of, at the time, newly-discovered plant species. They are both beautiful works of art and stunning pieces to hang on the wall at home.

The history of the shoe

From ancient Egypt to fashion weeks the world over, shoes have always been high on the agenda when it comes to dressing well. Rosanna Morris takes you through some of the iconic moments in footwear history.

H&A’s deputy editor Dominique Corlett takes a closer look a Pablo Picasso’s lesser-known talent for making ceramics and discovers that pieces are surprisingly affordable.
