📒The White Road ✍ Edmund de Waal
✏The White Road Book Summary : An intimate narrative history of porcelain, structured around five journeys through landscapes where porcelain was dreamed about, fired, refined, collected, and coveted. Extraordinary new nonfiction, a gripping blend of history and memoir, by the author of the award-winning and bestselling international sensation, The Hare with the Amber Eyes. In The White Road, bestselling author and artist Edmund de Waal gives us an intimate narrative history of his lifelong obsession with porcelain, or "white gold." A potter who has been working with porcelain for more than forty years, de Waal describes how he set out on five journeys to places where porcelain was dreamed about, refined, collected and coveted-and that would help him understand the clay's mysterious allure. From his studio in London, he starts by travelling to three "white hills"-sites in China, Germany and England that are key to porcelain's creation. But his search eventually takes him around the globe and reveals more than a history of cups and figurines; rather, he is forced to confront some of the darkest moments of twentieth-century history. Part memoir, part history, part detective story, The White Road chronicles a global obsession with alchemy, art, wealth, craft, and purity. In a sweeping yet intimate style that recalls The Hare with the Amber Eyes, de Waal gives us a singular understanding of "the spectrum of porcelain" and the mapping of desire.

📒Edmund De Waal Atemwende ✍ Adam Gopnik
✏Edmund de Waal Atemwende Book Summary : I’ve been thinking about new ways to make pauses, spaces, and silences, where breath is held inside and between each vessel, between the objects and the vitrines, the vitrines and the room. —Edmund de Waal Though known for his best-selling novel The Hare with Amber Eyes (2010), de Waal is primarily a ceramic artist. He has been shown and collected by museums throughout the world. This beautiful catalogue documents his first show with Gagosian Gallery, New York. Atemwende comprises a series of vitrines containing thrown porcelain vessels arranged in specific groupings. From simple pairs of pots to complex multitudes in their hundreds, these minimalist dichotomies in black and white suggest the sequences and patterns of a musical score, while titles cite the poetry of Paul Celan, Wallace Stevens, and others.
📒Edmund De Waal ✍ Joan Simon

Confronting European and Asian traditions of intimate craftsmanship with the scale and sequence of minimalist art and music, Edmund de Waal s ensembles of porcelain vessels evoke at once the delicate measure of Agnes Martin s sublime abstract paintings and the rhythmic pulses of the music of Philip Glass and Steve Reich."

📒Edmund De Waal Giorgio Morandi ✍ Bo Nilsson
✏Edmund de Waal Giorgio Morandi Book Summary : The exhibition at Artipelag highlights about fifty works from Morandi?s career. The very earliest works are from 1921 and the latest from 1963. A significant portion of the Morandi paintings featured in the exhibition are still life of ceramic household items and there are also a handful of landscape paintings included. The paintings are complemented by drawings, etchings and watercolours, which illustrate Morandi?s artistic range.0De Waal?s characteristic series of porcelain pots shifts the attention from each pot to their grouping as a whole, the created spaces between them and how the viewer?s gaze flows through the art work.0Artipelag?s exhibition will be the first time that de Waal?s works are presented in Sweden and will include close to forty art works from 2012 to 2017. About ten of these works are new, stemming from a dialogue with the works of Morandi; de Waal has on numerous occasions emphasized Morandi as one of his greatest sources of inspiration. 00Exhibition: Artipelag, Gustavsberg, Sweden (07.04. -1.10.2017)
