Six months ago we opened “Welcome Home! A Celebration of the Minton Archive”, our collaborative display with The Potteries Museum & Art Gallery… how time flies! Being a temporary display the time has now come for it to close, but as part of that process we’re adding even more information from the display onto the blog.
We’ve talked about our two display cases and the items displayed within them in two previous posts – “Welcome Home!”: Tableware and “Welcome Home!”: Art and Design – but you can now also find out more about the display and the project in general via our downloadable text panels. As a bit of a last-minute experiment we also took the opportunity to photograph the display space as a 360° panorama, the results of which you can see above in the featured image and in the interactive panorama viewer below.
We know it’s not the same as visiting the display and seeing the items for yourself, but with website visitors from as far away as Brazil, Japan and New Zealand we decided it wouldn’t hurt to make our display as virtual as possible!
