Seto and Mino Ceramics by Louise Allison Cort

An inspired outpouring of colorfully glazed and eccentrically shaped ceramics from Mino delineates the glories of the Momoyama period (1568-1615), remembered as a golden age for all the arts throughout Japan. Continuing throughout the Edo period (1615-1868), Seto set the standard for fine glazed pottery to such an extent that the term Setomono (Seto things) became a synonym for “ceramics.” Today Seto and Mino continue to flourish. ‘Seto and Mino Ceramics’ is the first comprehensive study in English of these important wares. This volume draws upon current research by Japanese archaeologists and art historians in its exploration of the Freer Gallery’s important group of 126 works. Dating from the seventh through the late nineteenth century, the objects illustrate the long history of ceramic production within the Seto-Mino region.
