Japan experienced an unparalleled blossoming of ceramics in the 16th and 17th  centuries fueled by the development of the tea ceremony, enormous technological advances initially drawn from China and Korea, and the establishment of distinctive glazes and styles for which Japan is still renowned.
In the post WWII era, Japan emerged from the ashes to once again lay claim to ceramic greatness that inspires the world today. Across three generations of clay masters, we are witnessing what is a New Golden Age of Japanese ceramics.

Creating an acquisitive market in the West for this seductive material has taken decades of work and perseverance. Today, in addition to savvy Western collectors, museums across the globe are now staging exhibitions and avidly acquiring important works for their permanent collections both through purchase and donation. Understanding this area is becoming increasingly important for both international experts and appraisers.
