For the last three months I have been living in Brighton. One of the few places I have had time to visit was the Brighton Museum and Art gallery at the Royal Pavilion. If you ever find yourself in Brighton then it is well worth a visit.
Here are some highlights from my visit.
Brighton Museum and Art Gallery
12A Pavilion Parade Brighton BN1 1EE
Free to residents Open daily 10-5pm Closed Sundays
Wow, more dust collectors than my Nan had. Mr Willett’s room is dedicated to a founding father of Brighton Museum. No storm in a tea cup in here just a collection of Mr Willett’s popular pottery. Floorboards that squeak and displays that speak illustrating history through colourful pottery. Life forever frozen on the potter’s wheel then painted and sealed in a hot furnace. Beyond the mantelpiece open the drawers and find even more plates and plaques. “No art with Potters can compare, we make our pots of what we Potters are” Anon 18th C Potters’ motto, each window draped with a massive blind to keep the harsh sunlight out.
