‘Is Edmund de Waal a potter who writes or a writer who makes pots? He has always equated writing with making, and finds that one very much informs the other. Though he is probably more widely known as the author of the bestselling book The Hare with Amber Eyes, he has long been revered for his ceramic art, incorporating elements of architecture, sculpture, installation and poetry, which is held in collections at major museums all over the world.’
— Jessamy Calkin (The Telegraph, 28 September 2012).

This catalogue documents the origination, making and installation of the final artwork.
