9780198263708: The Early Porcelain Kilns of Japan: Arita in the First Half of the Seventeenth Century (Oxford Oriental Monographs)

This is the first book in English to document what Japanese porcelain was like before it was "discovered" in Europe, and thereafter made with a view to foreign, rather than Japanese, tastes. It is also the first in-depth study of the working practices of the pottery kilns of the seventeenth century. Impey assesses the individual kilns at Arita and reconstructs a detailed and fascinating picture of how these beautiful, little-known objects were made.

Review:


"An abundance of superb colored plates and black-and-white photographs enhance the text. An inclusive bibliography not only of English but of Japanese and European sources greatly enhances the worth of this book. A valuable addition to holdings in ceramics."--Choice


"The Early Porcelain Kilns of Japan is an indispensable resource for any student or collector of Asian ceramics, and an important addition to existing research on historical ceramics throughout the world...the sheer volume and scope of material presented in Impey's book assure that it will remain an essential reference in ceramics studies for many years to come.--Journal of Japanese Studies
