Edmund de Waal is one of the leading artists working with ceramics today. He has also specialized in various large-scale installations which show groups of ceramic vessels, often in historic architectural settings. "Signs and Wonders" will be the largest and most ambitious installation commission, to date, by any single artist in a public or private space,which will be placed at the heart of the recently reopened ceramic galleries in the V&A. This beautifully illustrated book provides a very personal narrative on how the galleries have generated new ways of working. Archival pictures and newly commissioned photography of the installation made up of 425 pieces, are shown alongside examples from the V&A's world famous ceramics collection, which have in turn inspired "Signs and Wonders".
