Fanning the Flames: Building a Market
for Japanese Modern Ceramics:
1950 to the Present

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
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.
