Product description

Review

"This stunning monograph, the first collecting the work of artist and writer de Waal... Functions like a poem, measuring off de Waal's work from the world it lives in, and finding in that partitioning the boundless potential of a simple pot."―Publishers Weekly

"This April sees the publication of a deluxe monograph on de Waal's work by Phaidon Press, which, in place of the usual impenetrable art speak, includes eloquent contributions by such writerly types as AS Byatt, Colm Toibin, and Peter Carey."―Departures

"Emma Crichton-Miller contributes a graceful, sympathetic biographical introduction, the clearest account of de Waal's career so far. The book is... in full accord with de Waal's own aesthetic: a beautiful piece of work in its own right, to be cherished."―David Sexton, Evening Standard

"In words, and through Toby Glanville’s fine photographic essay, Edmund de Waal presents an image of the artist as a uniquely gifted wunderkind."―TLS - Tanya Harrod

From the Inside Flap

The first monograph on this internationally famous potter and writer, this book brings to life the man behind The Hare with Amber Eyes. Stunning photography reveals a day in the life of de Waal and his studio and documents his major exhibitions and installations. Contributors include novelists Colm Toibín, Peter Carey and AS Byatt.

If you are interested in contemporary art...or porcelain...or handcrafted sculpture...you will find this a beautiful addition to your library. Mr. deWaal approaches his hand built minimal porcelain from the perspective of an intellectual and philosopher.
