In this episode of Material Matters with Grant Gibson, the ceramist and award-winning writer Edmund de Waal talked about a childhood he described as “odd”, the relationship between making and writing, dealing with critics, and why some of his early work was “needy”.

Over the course of six 30-minute interviews, the former Blueprint and Crafts editor talks to different designers, artists and makers about their relationship to a particular material or technique with which they’re intrinsically linked.

“It has long been my view that there’s a huge amount of untapped talent on the British craft scene. The idea of this podcast is to get the makers’ voices to as wide an audience as possible. I hope it will be listened to by architects, designers and artists as well as collectors and interested members of the public. I literally couldn’t be more excited.” says Grant Gibson
