Edmund de Waal Exhibition Catalogue

Award: Wood Pencil

Wood Pencil / Graphic Design / Brochures & Catalogues / 2006

Between the 1st and 30th of November, Blackwell, The Arts & Crafts House, presented ‘a line around a shadow’; an exhibition of work by one of the UK’s most respected ceramicists and leading artist-potters, Edmund de Waal. Each piece on show was specially created for the exhibition at Blackwell, and complemented by a selection of work by his various apprentices. This was the first time a collection had been newly created for Blackwell. De Waal was wonderfully sensitive to Blackwell, bringing a harmonious orchestration revealed and experienced as the visitor moves through the different spaces and ever-changing light in the house. The catalogue is equally sensitive to the work and to the engaging space and light of Blackwell, located on the shores of Lake Windemere. Photographs, by Graham Murrell, of the ceramics in situ are presented with clarity, full bleed, and with brief captions that fly over the image; informative but wholly unobtrusive to the image. This is complemented by a clean typographical language for the opening essays printed on thin, light blue stock and for the rear section which focuses on De Waal’s apprentices.
