Since Japan opened to trade with the West in the mid-19th century, collectors and curators have been enamoured with Japanese ceramics. In the past two decades, this love has deepened and broadened, touching upon both functional and sculptural works by contemporary artists. This has in turn had a significant impact on the artistic development in Japan.
This book explores the many reasons behind recent Western interest in contemporary Japanese clay through dedicated collectors and galleries, as well as the emergence of great art by both senior masters and rising talents. Further, it addresses how the interaction of East and West has culminated in this evolving phenomenon.
The publication includes more than one hundred illustrations of artwork and exhibitions in prominent American museums and the homes of private collectors who live with their ceramic collection on a daily basis. Reflecting on the state of the clay art field in Japan, Mirviss then focuses on twelve pioneering artists in the second section of the book, taking into consideration both their heritage and/or academic background as well as their genius for balancing tradition with innovation.
