Edmund de Waal will be travelling to Ireland this Autumn to give a talk about the Fonthill Vase, a 14th century vessel and one of the earliest pieces of porcelain to arrive in Europe from China, which has been in the permanent collection of the National Museum of Ireland in the 1950s. The talk comes out of de Waal's research for his book, The White Road, in which he describes first visiting the museum on a pilgrimage to see the vase.
