This catalogue accompanied The Frick Collection's temporary installation of sculptures by acclaimed author and ceramist Edmund de Waal. Site-specific works made of porcelain, steel, gold, marble, and glass were displayed in the museum's main galleries alongside works from the permanent collection.

De Waal is known for his installations of porcelain vessels housed in minimal structures, often created in response to collections and archives or the history of a specific place. Past sites have included Waddesdon Manor and Chatsworth House — this project marked his first such installation in the United States.The presentation, curated by Charlotte Vignon, Curator of Decorative Arts, was the latest in a series of collaborations with de Waal and The Frick Collection. 

The fully illustrated catalogue features installation views and essays by Vignon and de Waal.
