Review:

... a superb study of Kozan and Meiji ceramics, a book that will undoubtedly serve as a reference for anyone interested in Makuzu Kozan, modern Japanese ceramics, and the institutions and events that informed Meiji-era material culture. Monumenta Nipponica The book is generously illustrated and well organized, with five useful appendices and a chronology. The subheadings are particularly helpful for quick navigation through the text. Monumenta Nipponica The reader will appreciate the subtlety with which Pollard has traced the vectors of influence that cut across nation, artistic media, and exhibition venue. Monumenta Nipponica In Master Potter of Meiji Japan, Clare Pollard has located Kozan's career within larger issues in Meiji ceramic arts, and in doing so, has given us a wealth of material that both explicates and transcends her nominal subject. Monumenta Nipponica
