‘From the Porcelain’
Signed copy of Ben Parker’s collection of poems from his time as Poet in Residence at the Museum of Royal Worcester June 2014 – June 2015.
Ben Parker was the Museum of Royal Worcester’s first ever Poet in Residence. He took an interest in learning a great deal about the history of Worcester Porcelain. Ben had access to the museum, our archive of books and audio recordings, and also met with former employees who shared their passion and feelings of affection with him which inspired him to write these poems.
Ben’s own words about the book “It is my hope that the poems in this book go some way to paying a tribute to the people and artefacts that I have encountered or heard about“.
