    1. The book description does the book justice An exhibit catalog from the Fine Arts Museum of Boston to document a contemporary Japanese ceramics exhibit host in 2005 2006 As a collector of several of the featured artists I am always interested in further discussion of their artistic practice And it gives hints of new artists to explore.


    2. Not much of an introduction but good photos of works of potters included More photos would have been helpful.
