Edmund de Waal describes himself as a ‘potter who writes’. His porcelain has been displayed in many museum collections around the world and he has recently made a huge installation for the dome of the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. Edmund was apprenticed as a potter, studied in Japan, and read English Literature at Cambridge University. ‘The Hare with Amber Eyes’, a journey through the history of a family in objects, is his most personal book.
