Edmund de Waal is an internationally acclaimed artist and writer, best known for his large-scale installations of porcelain vessels. These works are often created in response to collections and archives, or the history of a particular place. His interventions have been made for diverse spaces and museums worldwide, including Waddesdon Manor (Buckinghamshire), the Musée Nissim de Camondo (Paris), The British Museum (London), The Frick Collection (New York), Ateneo Veneto (Venice), Schindler House (Los Angeles), Kunsthistorisches Museum (Vienna), and V&A Museum (London).

De Waal is renowned for his bestselling books, ”The Hare with Amber Eyes” (2010) and ”The White Road” (2015). His most recent book, ”Letters to Camondo” a series of haunting letters written during lockdown, was published in April 2021. He was awarded the Windham-Campbell Prize for non-fiction by Yale University in 2015 and awarded a CBE for his services to art in 2021.
