The first complete survey of de Waal's career to date, this groundbreaking monograph encompasses major exhibitions and installations at the Victoria and Albert Museum, Tate Liverpool, and the Gagosian Gallery in New York. Stunning photography conveys the delicacy of de Waal's works and provides a rare glimpse into his studio practice. In addition to being one of the world's leading ceramicists, de Waal is also a renowned historian of the medium. His critical and personal essays and poetry are interspersed throughout the book, bringing to light the prominence of ceramics in our everyday lives. Together, de Waal's art and writing speak to his enduring fascination with the nature of objects and the attendant history of their collection and display. Contributions to this monograph by novelists Colm Toibin, Peter Carey, and AS Byatt appear alongside critical essays by Guggenheim curator Alexandra Munroe, journalist Emma Crichton-Miller, and architect Deborah Saunt. Elegant papers and a tooled case make Edmund de Waal an exquisitely collectable object

The doctors told him that he would never walk, feed himself, or dress himself again.
