I love discovering new artists and it’s odd how some pass me by. Edmund de Waal is one such discovery. A British artist working in ceramics who places minimal, undecorated hand made objects into vitrines and boxes like above. I enjoy the simplicity of the form and the subtle nuance of colours and form across his collections of saucers and tumblers. He reminds me of Giorgio Morandi from a purely visual sense, in that his work has a silence and meditative quality that is far removed from the showy gimmick art that is so prevalent in contemporary galleries. You can find more such works on his website http://www.edmunddewaal.com/ I hope to get to Margate at some point to see his installation “atmosphere” before its close next year at the Turner Contemporary.
