Drawing inspiration from traditional Japanese miniatures, the work of Barnett Newman and Donald Judd, and a number of literary sources, Edmund de Waal creates ceramic works ranging from tiny vessels to large-scale installations. The porcelain containers encased in a variety of horizontal and vertical vitrines, such as in the series “Just Lately” (2007-2008), vary subtly in size and color and bear the marks of the artist’s labor, with their arrangements variously evoking musical rhythms and the sense of presentation inherent in a china cabinet. De Waal sees his practice as uniting East and West, with equal strains of medieval Chinese ceramics and Bauhaus aesthetics.
