Description

Delicate porcelain vessels stand on a shelf, obscured by frosted glass. These vessels tell a story. A story of homecoming. For world-renowned ceramicist Edmund de Waal that story is personal. He is the son of a refugee. In 1939 his Jewish father, then just a boy, aged nine, fled Vienna with his uncle. Their home had been ravaged by the Nazis. Carrying nothing with them but a single suitcase, they gained visas and sought sanctuary in England. Perhaps inevitably, ideas of homelessness, exile and belonging have long influenced Edmund’s works, which are displayed in galleries across the world. When the Sheffield alumnus and honorary graduate learnt about the University of Sheffield’s long-standing tradition of welcoming refugee staff and students, he wanted to honour it and gave the university a gift .Find out more about the gift, and listen to Edmund speak about homelessness in this collection.
