The Art of Japanese Cloisonne Enamel: History, Techniques and Artists, 1600 to the Present by Fredric T Schneider
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


An art form renowned for its beauty and technical wizardry, Japanese cloisonne enamel is becoming increasingly valued among collectors, artisans, and historians. This book provides a detailed history of Japanese cloisonne enamel and the development of its many technical varieties. Part One presents the 400-year history and context of Japanese enamels from their beginnings around 1600, covering the crucial decades of the late 19th and early 20th centuries extensively. Part Two is organized by individual technique and categorizes and discusses the many variations of cloisonne enamel developed in Japan. Integrated into both parts are biographies of many cloisonne masters along with discussions of the technical and scientific underpinnings of the craft. The work is complemented by an extensive glossary, several appendices, and a guide to identifying 290 artist's marks and signatures.
