Product Details

Praise

“[The Japanese Pottery Handbook] is not a coffee table publication. It is far more useful than that: it is a very practical guide. . . . The publishers describe the first edition, published thirty-five years ago, as loved for its homespun charm, and it is hard to disagree. It has become a classic. This is a revised edition. . . the original authors have added new sections. . .; they have re-drawn many of their illustrations and added twenty-first century material such as useful web addresses. At the end of the book there is a fascinating list of towns where you will find potters or galleries who welcome visitors. It is very much in the tradition of the hands-on approach which was championed by Bernard Leach after his time spent in Japan. . . . Should you have the opportunity to visit or study in Japan the translations of common pottery terms will be invaluable. If you are unable to do so, this book is the next best thing. . . . I shall keep my copy close by. . . .” – CERAMIC REVIEW
