Excerpt from Japanese Porcelain This is one of the most animated pieces produced from the famous Hirado factory. The boys are seen playing Blind Man's Buff round a stone lantern. The figures are brilliantly glazed and coloured, but the stone pillar holding the lantern is left in plain biscuit. The characters on the pillar tell of some legend in connection with the game. The piece is slightly warped in the baking, a not uncommon result of the early unscientific methods of the Japanese potters.

"David Abulafia's new book guides readers along the world's greatest bodies of water to reveal their primary role in human history. The main protagonists are the three major oceans-the Atlantic, the Pacific, and the Indian-which together comprise the majority of the earth's water and cover over half of its surface. Over time, as passage through them gradually extended and expanded, linking first islands and then continents, maritime networks developed, evolving from local exploration to lines of regional communication and commerce and eventually to major arteries. These waterways carried goods, plants, livestock, and of course people-free and enslaved-across vast expanses, transforming and ultimately linking irrevocably the economies and cultures of Africa, Europe, Asia, and the Americas"--

Since the early seventeenth century when the secret of porcelain was first carried from China to Japan by Korean potters, Japan has produced some of the world's most exquisite porcelains. The Kakiemon masters in Arita on the island of Kyushu gained particular renown for the quality of their colourful overglaze enamels and artistic designs. Through exports Kakiemon ware had a profound impact on the development of European porcelain in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, inspiring ceramic manufacturers in both continental Europe and England to reach new levels of technical and artistic achievement. Dragons, Tigers and Bamboo highlights 170 masterpieces from the Bill and Molly Anne Macdonald Collection at the Gardiner Museum of Ceramic Art in Toronto, Canada. This extraordinary collection illustrates many different aspects of the historical interaction between Japanese and European porcelain during the seventeenth, eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. It is unquestionably the best cross-cultural porcelain collection in Canada and is among the best of its kind in the world. Illustrated with more than 160 full-colour photographs commissioned for this volume, Dragons, Tigers and Bamboo for the first time makes the Macdonald Collection accessible to an international audience.

Excerpt from Information Relating to the Pottery Industry in Japan The distinction made in the Questionnaire between China and General earthenware is difficult to observe in dealing with Japanese ceramics. The Japanese distinguish between Earthenware, which corresponds to the English classification, and porcelain. Intermediate between these two is the modern manufacture (confined to one or two firms) of what is called in Japan Hard Earthenware, a generic term corresponding to faience or semi-porcelain but commercially applied t0'an Ironstone China. Apart from this, there is very little export ware that would come under the heading General Earthenware in Japan, and the following account may be taken to refer to China Porcelain) exclusively unless otherwise specifically stated.
