The last twenty-five years have seen a flourishing of Japanese studio crafts that we are only now beginning to learn about in the West. An extensive network of craft practitioners—in ceramics, lacquerwork, woodwork, basketry, textiles, and fiberwork, metalwork, jewelry, and glass—has evolved to produce a huge range of work rich in its diversity of style and technique. This book serves as an introduction to the activities pursued by these contemporary Japanese makers.
