About this title


Sumida ware began as "Japanese pottery made in the Chinese style" which soon incorporated western shapes and became a ware designed and mass-produced for the export market. It can be cited as an excellent example of "Art Manufacture" which in this case is an art form that is non-representative of a culture. For those of us who collect it, the charm is in it multitude of shapes, the various colorful glaze combinations and the infinite variety of applied decorations that express beauty, humor, and folklore." (from the conclusion) This is the first comprehensive study of Sumida Ware to be published, representing ten years of the authors' research and photography. More than 700 pieces are shown, all in color, including many 360 degree photos and more than 70 potter's marks. A separate price guide with 2001 prices is also included.
