This unique collection was donated to the borough by the Hull Grundys in 1980, and now is on display in the Victorian wing of Pitzhanger Manor-House. The Martin Brothers produced the pottery from 1873-1923 in Fulham and Southall. A catalogue of the whole Hull Grundy collection is also on sale

Wundercamera will bring together photography of the world’s museums and galleries to offer an illuminating view of the ways in which cultural venues display their works – and how visitors behave around them.
This exhibition will present a range of images by a group of international artists which explore the art of the curator through the medium of photography. The resulting photographic ‘museum of museums’ will provide an arresting visual experience by re-presenting the re-presented. The works in the exhibition focus on different aspects of the museum and gallery experience, from the development of exhibitions, through to examining individual artworks or the behaviour of visitors interacting with the space. The group exhibition is complimented by a site-specific installation in the house where Sir John Soane’s eclectic collection of art and antiquities (now housed at Sir John Soane’s Museum) will be returned photographically to its original home.
- 24 January — 8 March 2014
Just Glass will display a new collection of abstract sculpture, wall hangings, functional vessels and chandeliers, demonstrating the beauty that can be achieved with kiln-formed glass. Featuring new work inspired by Sir John Soane’s Pitzhanger Manor and his ground-breaking use of architectural glass, the exhibition will also be drawn from the best work of the Just Glass collective in the past ten years, including established and emerging glass artists.
