Item Description...
For more than 30 years, Dr. Anneliese and Dr. Wulf Crueger—guided by Saeko Itô—have devoted themselves to studying, understanding, and collecting Japanese ceramics. Today, they share the rich fruits of their knowledge with this lavishly illustrated volume based on their own collection. The equivalent of Roberts Museum Guide, devotees of beautiful ceramics can pick it up and use it to select and visit potters as they undertake an artistic tour of the country. Organized geographically, it goes from kiln to kiln—which in Japan may refer to a lone site or an entire ceramics region that contains hundreds of workshops. Along the way, they outline the history, development, and unique stylistic characteristics of each area's work, and the traditions that inspired it.

Just what I was looking for...  Jan 17, 2008
Having already had an interest in Japanese pottery, when I moved to Fukuoka in Kyushu last year, I realized that Kyushu pottery was not just the famous Arita/Imari ware or even Karatsu-yaki. I looked in vain for a book which would give me some background on the many types of pottery in Kyushu that boasted a history of hundreds of years. I wanted something published fairly recently, knowing that there were talented young potters carrying on the work of generations. Naturally I thought I would find it among Japanese language publications, but no, I found it in this one. I rely on it. In addition to the history of the various types of pottery, it contains pictures of representative pieces and even directions to the kilns/pottery towns toward the back. I wish it also had directions by car in some cases, but I understand why that might difficult. Now if only we could add descriptions of hot springs near the pottery towns, it would be a dream come true!
A Nifty Little Book! I like it!  Aug 26, 2007
I tend to agree with the reveiw above....The title is misleading,it is not a book about modern Japanese ceramics. Most of the photos are of works done in the 1800's, but there are some interesting examples of more contemporary works in the final chapters, and those were indeed very interesting. But I was not displeased with this book,in fact, it was quite the reverse. I have very little knowledge of Japanese techniques, I tend to work in underglazes and North American technical ways of firing, so, a chance to see a completley different perspective on ceramics from a Japanese cultural point of veiw is a great thing for me.
Its a great little book, loaded with photos, technical info, and the works in the final chapters has me interested in purchasing another book on real contemporary Asia ceramics...this site has such a one,I think I may order it today, in fact!
One the whole, it's great value for the money, I would recommend it to anyone who is curious about Japanese approaches to this art form.
more tradition than innovation  Jul 4, 2007
First, the good -- this book contains lots of beautiful pictures of Japanese pottery from the 1990's and early 21st century. For that alone, it may be worth purchasing this book. Now the not-so-good -- if you are expecting to see cutting edge, modern ceramics from Japan, this is not the book for you. The text focuses largely on the history of Japaneses pottery and makes only a slight attempt to review the work of contemporary potters. The illustrations of pottery, while visually appealing, also fall largely (although not exclusively) into the category of traditional forms and firing methods. Although I am always happy to look at traditional Japanese pottery, I found little in this book that could provide inspiration for my own more modern work.
