From the Publisher:
"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
This volume documents the porcelain pieces made in Japan in the first half of the 17th century, an era that encompasses the origins of the Japanese porcelain industry and the time of the export trade to Europe and the Near East. The book also offers a comprehensive reconstruction of the working practices of Japanese potters in the 17th century, assessing the individual kilns of Arita, where the porcelain was made, and looking at the workshop methods of today in order to throw light on possible 17th-century conditions. There are many photographs of fine examples, as well as of kiln-damaged pieces retrieved from kiln-sites, to show which kilns were working when producing which type of porcelain within the genre. The author thus demonstrates that the problematic porcelain of Old Kutani is nearly all of Arita manufacture.
