Edmund de Waal is a world-famous ceramicist. Having spent thirty years making beautiful pots - which are then sold, collected, and handed on - he has a particular sense of the secret lives of objects. When he inherited a collection of 264 tiny Japanese wood and ivory carvings, called netsuke, he wanted to know who had touched and held them, and how the collection had managed to survive.
And so begins this extraordinarily moving memoir and detective story as the author discovers both the story of the netsuke and of his family, the Ephrussis, over five generations.
This event is free and all are welcome and encouraged to attend!
