There can be no potter in the world whose name is more widely known and respected than that of Bernard Leach. He is as famous in Japan and the East as he is in Europe and America, not only as an artist-craftsman but also as a thinker. Leach was born in Hong Kong, and spent the first few years of his life in Japan. Later, he attended Slade School of Fine Art and the London School of Art, where he studied etching under Frank Brangwyn. ‘A Potter in Japan’ is a collection of memoirs and diary entiries from his return to Japan in the early 1950’s. These accounts provide a unique opportunity to see the Eastern influence on his craft. This book appeals to lovers of ceramics and those with an interest in cultural interchange between East and West.
