Edmund de Waal

Edmund de Waal’s ceramic objects have a distinct character of their own despite their simplicity and no more than the most subtle color nuances in their celadon glazes. He marks each of his creations with a seal while the clay is soft, and also includes in his installations imperfect vessels that have become deformed in the firing process. He combines features of Asian pottery with contemporary shapes and likes to stage his pieces in the form of framed still lifes. Since 2009 one of his installations has been on show in the cupola of the Victoria & Albert Museum in London. Edmund de Waal is also a well-known author of standard works on ceramics and has written an international bestseller with his family memoir entitled The Hare with Amber Eyes.
