poetry in porcelain

White porcelain vessels arranged in rows, in groups and on their own, are the work of my favorite potter, Edmund de Waal.  I discovered his work at a shop called Egg in London many years ago, when I walked up the stairs and found a small collection of cylinders in white porcelain and celadon in an empty room on a single shelf  and a fireplace mantel.  In this spare and serene setting, I fell in love with de Waal's pottery and have followed his work and his writing ever since. And now his newest collection is on exhibition in New York at the Gagosian Gallery on Madison Avenue where I spent this past Saturday morning  surrounded by assemblages of hundreds of his vessels...his new book is on his journey and life with the color white. I can't wait.
