EDMUND DE WAAL THE HARE WITH AMBER EYES PDF

Share via Email A netsuke belonging to ceramicist Edmund de Waal. Netsuke are toggles used to attach a carrying pouch to traditional Japanese garments. Sometimes they look like the stacked contents of a cooled kiln, waiting for the selection to reject the misfires; or survivors retrieved from a cargo long sunk on its voyage back from the Far East. De Waal barely mentions his pots in this unique memoir of his family, though. Netsuke seem the opposite of frangible porcelain. They were carved in finegrained wood or ivory to reward touch and endure wear while doing their job, as the toggle on a cord from which a container was slung, most often for medicine or tobacco.

I am grounded in history, the history and culture of the materials I use, this extraordinary two-thousand-year history of porcelain.

Edmund de Waal

Share via Email Edmund de Waal is a potter, perhaps the most famous potter working in Britain today. His bowls and beakers, thrown in porcelain and glazed in celadon, are domestic, — in theory, you could fill them with hot tea — but they also exist in a more contemplative realm; arranged in pale lines and marked by various dents and asymmetries, they whisper a story of limitless but rather fragile possibility. This is what they say: that the potter may throw any shape he likes; that no two of his pots will ever be precisely the same; and that a pot may disappear — crash! As an ever-present metaphor for human endeavour, I fear they would slowly drive me mad. In his memoir, de Waal alludes early on to the existential hum some objects emit.
