"Why is it that art has to be old to be valued? Anthologies & studies of ancient Japanese ceramics have been published to exhaustion, but the contemporary masterpieces are often all but ignored. In the present book, however, a wide-ranging collection of modern Japanese porcelain pieces, originally assembled for a 1979 exhibition at the National Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo, have been gathered together in one finely crafted volume.
