Paul Bradley – the maker of the pot in the previous post – pointed me at the work of Edmund de Waal. It’s interesting what he is saying in this video about his Japanese influences and you can see clearly how he is now very much working with ceramics in context. No wood in sight, just painted MDF, but I can see the potential.
The video is from the V+A channel website. (if you can’t view it then try refreshing this page and click again. It seems a bit erratic) Edmund d W created an installation for the new ceramics galleries at the V+A …. I shall visit!
