Edmund de Waal


Edmund de Waals free and vigorous handling of porcelain is fresh confirmation of its functional and sculptural potential. His softly thrown forms may be quietly expressive but they are meant for every day use; to be washed up, stored and enjoyed at the table. To feel dents, warps and ribs on his beakers, jars or teapots is to share in the quirks of their making, and the tactility of a clay too long hindered by old notions of its status and precocity.
