We heard Edmund deWaal give a talk in York about his journey into Porcelain s historyIt involved him travelling to various famous parts of the World where Porcelain is manufactured He gave a very personal view about why this material and things that are made of it become an obsession to a huge number of people especially those in PowerThis book was an obvious purchase after this introduction by the potter himselfIt did not disappoint although you can see how Edmund de Waal s mind works as a fluttering butterfly about this subjectThoroughly recommend this book even if you have no real interest in Porcelain
