Ceramic Traditions of South-East Asia, John Guy

Oxford University Press 232099 Oxford 1989 0195889347 / 9780195889345 Hardcover (Printed Boards) Very Good Condition The achievements of the potters of South-East Asia have not been widely acknowledged in the history of the region, and were rarely seen by early writers as having a clear cultural identity of their own. This book provides an introduction to the histories of the glazed ceramic traditions of South-East Asia. It examines the ceramics of Burma, Cambodia, Thailand, and Vietnam, and discusses the wares, kiln technology, and evolution of forms and glazes. Through current archaeological work in Thailand and investigations of kiln sites in Burma and Vietnam, John Guy incorporates much new material in the study, providing a new understanding of the region's ceramic traditions. 68 pages.

12 Margaret Medley The Chinese Potter: A Practical History of Chinese Ceramics
Phaidon Press 232268 London 1999 Reprint 071482593X / 9780714825939 Softcover Very Good Condition China has the longest and most highly developed ceramic tradition in the world, encompassing early Neolithic earthenwares, the finely glazed stoneware pieces of the Song period - widely regarded as among the greatest ceramics ever produced and years' worth of Imperial patronage and export ware for the new markets of the West. Margaret Medley's classic groundbreaking study is the first to bring a practical approach to the study of Chinese pottery. She makes full use of archaeological reports to show how differing geographical areas, materials and developing technologies all shaped the evolution of Chinese ceramics. Her revolutionary insights, along with an astute critical judgement in the field of art history itself, combine to form a definitive but approachable account that of the whole history of Chinese pottery. 288 pages.

Inside Japanese Ceramics - A Primer of Materials, Techniques and Traditions, Richard L. Wilson
18 Richard L. Wilson Inside Japanese Ceramics - A Primer of Materials, Techniques and Traditions
Weatherhill 232063 New York 1999 0834804425 / 9780834804425 Softcover Near Fine Condition This practical and supremely useful manual is the first comprehensive, hands-on introduction to Japanese ceramics. The Japanese ceramics tradition is without compare in its technical and stylistic diversity, its expressive content, and the level of appreciation it enjoys, both in Japan and around the world. Inside Japanese Ceramics focuses on tools, materials, and procedures, and how all of these have influenced the way traditional Japanese ceramics look and feel. A true primer, it concentrates on the basics: setting up a workshop, pot-forming techniques, decoration, glazes, and kilns and firing. It introduces the major methods and styles that are taught in most Japanese workshops, including several representative and well-known wares: Bizen, Mino, Karatsu, Hagi, and Kyoto. While presenting the time-tested techniques of the tradition, author Richard L. Wilson also accommodates modern technologies and materials as appropriate. Wilson has gathered a wealth of information on two fronts-as a researcher of Japanese pottery and art history, and as a potter who has studied and worked for years with master Japanese potters. In his introduction, he provides a short history of Japanese ceramics, and in closing he looks beyond traditional methods toward ways in which Western potters can make Japanese methods their own. Richly illustrated with 24 color plates, over 100 black-and-white photographs, and over 70 instructive line-drawings, Inside Japanese Ceramics is indispensable for potters as well as connoisseurs and collectors of Japanese ceramics. Above all, it is an invitation to participate-to study, make, touch, and use the exquisite products of the Japanese ceramic tradition. 190 pages. Fully Illustrated. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram. Category: Antiques & Collectibles::Collectibles; United States; ISBN: 0834804425. ISBN/EAN: 9780834804425. Inventory No: 232063. Paperback

Hagi [Famous Ceramics of Japan 11], Ryoji Kuroda
19 Ryoji Kuroda Hagi [Famous Ceramics of Japan 11]
Kodansha International Ltd 232087 Tokyo 1983 First Edition 0870115944 / 9780870115943 Hardcover Very Good Condition Very Good Large Book - between A4 and A3 Among the great Japanese tea ceremony wares, Hagi pottery is ranked second, after Raku ware. Hari is derived from Yi dynasty Korean ceramics and was first produced by immigrant Korean potters who came [or were bought] to Japan as the result of japan's invasions of Korea in the 1590s. Hagi is known for its unadorned, unassuming and gracious quietness. Hagi's porous clay fires a warm buff or soft loquat colour and this colour allows the lovely colour-change effects to occur as Hagi pieces age and are used over the years.

Kodansha International Ltd 232088 Tokyo 1983 First Edition 0870115510 / 9780870115516 Hardcover Very Good Condition Very Good Large Book - between A4 and A3 The tea masters aphorism "First, Ido [Korean]; second, Raku; third, Karatsu" is a clear indication of the reverence given the latter ware both for teabowls and tea ceremony utensils. Though made at kilns adjacent to the refined, decorated porcelain production area of northern Kyushu, Karatsu ware never lost the vigor of the original Korean stoneware from which it is descended. In fact, karatsu is not one ware, but the stoneware products of different kilns, all of which were shipped through the port of Karatsu.
