    The Ephrussis were a grand banking family, as rich and respected as the Rothschilds, who “burned like a comet” in 19th-century Paris and Vienna society. Yet by the end of World War II, almost the only thing remaining of their vast empire was a collection of 264 wood and ivory carvings, none of them larger than a matchbox. The renowned ceramicist Edmund de Waal became the fifth generation to inherit this small and exquisite collection of netsuke. Entranced by their beauty and mystery, he determined to trace the story of his family through the story of the collection.

    A handful of clay from a Chinese hillside carries a promise: that mixed with the right materials, it might survive the fire of the kiln and fuse into porcelain - translucent, luminous, white. Acclaimed writer and potter Edmund de Waal sets out on a quest - a journey that begins in the dusty city of Jingdezhen in China and travels on to Venice, Versailles, Dublin, Dresden, the Appalachian Mountains of South Carolina and the hills of Cornwall to tell the history of porcelain.

    Forfatteren af denne bog, Edmund de Waal, er en internationalt anerkendt keramiker, der har sine værker udstillet over hele verden. En dag arver han fra en onkel en samling af 264 bittesmå, udskårne, japanske figurer af træ og elfenben - såkaldte netsuker - der har været i familiens eje siden 1870’erne. Arven og genstandene pirrer Edmund de Waals nysgerrighed, og han begiver sig ud på en rejse tilbage i den europæiske historie for at finde ud af, hvem der har rørt ved disse smukke, små skabninger, hvem der har elsket og beundret dem, og hvad de har været vidne til.
