This is the first book in a European language to make a comprehensive study of the life and works of the astonishingly versatile and accomplished Meiji potter, Makuzu Kozan (1842 - 1916), who was acclaimed as one of the greatest ceramic artists of the Meiji period.The Meiji period, after the opening of Japan to the West in the mid-nineteenth century, was a time of momentous change for Japanese society and Kozan's Makuzu workshop makes an ideal case study to examine the effects of these changes on the Japanese ceramic industry. This book tells the story ofKozan's Makuzu wares from their origins in a traditional workshop in Kyoto to their maturity in a prolific factory in the newly-opened port of Yokohama, where Kozan's ability to cater to the demands of a new Western export market and to incorporate new Western glaze techniques led to enormoussuccess, both in Japan and abroad at the international exhibitions that flourished from the 1850s.Lavish illustrations highlight Kozan's remarkable and technical and artistic achievements, while ceramic marks and box inscriptions are analysed as a practical guide to dating Makuzu ware. Clare Pollard discusses the role of later generations of the Miyagawa family in the running of the workshop andrelates developments in Makuzu ware to the work of other major potters of the era, both in Japan and in Europe and America.Incorporating contemporary sources (including previously unstudied archival material from the Makuzu workshop itself), recent research and the study of a large corpus of Makuzu wares in museums and private collections all over the world, the book examines the artistic, political, and commercialfactors that influenced Kozan and his contemporaries as they strove to come to terms with shifting life-styles and changing attitudes to the arts, and moved towards the creation of a modern ceramic industry.

The first ever book to provide a comprehensive history of British pottery, The Potter's Arttraces its remarkable development all the way from the rudimentary pots of the Middle Ages to the sophisticated art of today's studio potters. Beginning with the peasant potter, Garth Clark moves on to describe the development of style and fashion under the renowned industrialist Josiah Wedgwood. He also examines the work of the artist-potters William De Morgan and the Martin brothers, and the studio potters Bernard Leach and Lucie Rie. Focusing particularly on the distinctly human angle to the craft, the author brings the potters' personalities to life by describing their working conditions, lifestyles and characters. For all collectors and potters, this indispensable survey, with a bibliography, chronology and glossary, sheds new light on the history of British pottery. For anyone with a sense of aestheticism or a general interest in the arts, this is an absorbing introduction to perhaps the most fundamental artistic medium in the history of civilization.

For nearly three hundred years, from the late seventeenth to the middle twentieth century, stoneware was a major part of British ceramic output. This book concentrates on that particular area of ceramics, and covers the history and development of stoneware in all its many variations. Those variations range widely from brown salt-glazed tavern wares to such refined wares as jasper, Castleford ware and the later art wares, to name a few. A specific aspect of the book is to give anyone interested in ceramics, and collectors in particular, very comprehensive information on the manufacture of the different types of stoneware, from the preparation of the clay, or body, through the forming, decorating and glazing techniques to the firing. Such is likely to provide a greater appreciation and understanding of stoneware in its many variations.There are separate chapters on the later art wares and their makers, bottle wares, and marks and identification, as well as an appendix listing manufacturers, a comprehensive glossary and a list of museums. The illustrations cover a wide range of types. Many books on ceramics include information on stoneware, but this in-depth book benefits from the experience of a writer who is both a collector and ex-potter.
