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.

To an artist whose cultural root goes back to Asia, the new book "The Art of Japanese Cloisonne Enamel" by Fredric T. Schneider is both transporting and enriching.

The cloisonne technique does not presuppose the use of enamel. We have seen above the technique originated with gems rather than enamel. Shippo – the art of enameling in japan. Alexander and Gerber3 mentions wired snuff bottles with no enamel, cloisons filled with lacquer and others with acrylic plastic. In 1868, Tsukamoto Kaisuke4 was the first to apply cloisonne wires to pottery and fill the cells with various colors of glaze. Harper’s New Monthly Magazine, p. 211 mentioned above, describes a method which seems questionable in some respects. Far Eastern Art Council of Los Angeles County Museum of Art.

Of the approximately 20 books I own about Chinese and Japanese cloisonne, in various languages and formats and from various decades, Fredric Schneider's work is the one I find myself most often referencing when I have a question about Japanese cloisonne. An invaluable compendium, with an excellent bibliography and footnotes for further research when needed. While the size of the illustrations is of course cramped by the size limitations of the book itself, they provide excellent snapshots of the points made by the author throughout the book. I found especially interesting the illustrations of the old workshops, harvested from ephemera such as postcards and stereoview slides, as they present a poignant human perspective of the effort required to produce cloisonne objects. As many of the older factory owners and artists pass away, Mr. Schneider's insights sourced from personal interviews with Japanese cloisonne proprietors are likely irreplaceable. His appendix of makers' marks is the best currently available, especially for winnowing the possibilities while conducting an internet search for a mark. I suggest his publisher establish a web page for Mr. Schneider for the purpose of adding to the marks index, as well as for providing hi-res photographs to enable those interested to zoom in on details (a process that is cost prohibitive for paper publishing).

A scholarly and thorough publication by an enthusiast who obviously likes to dig deep for information and detail. For me this is the most comprehensive and useful of any publication on this subject to date. An extraordinary work that should be on the shelves of collectors and enthusiasts around the world. Very highly recommended.

To an artist whose cultural root goes back to Asia, the new book "The Art of Japanese Cloisonne Enamel" by Fredric T. Schneider is both transporting and enriching. Compared with the largely black and white images in another favorite book--Chinoiserie: The Vision of Cathay by Hugh Honour, the sophisticated color images of the delicate and sometimes, humorous birds and fish on the enamel in the new book are a testimony of the brilliant innovation of the digital age. They generate a visual intimacy of the esoteric subject. They are a feast to the eye. Reading the text by the collector and independent scholar led to further surprises.

The research work and interviews in Japan by Mr. Schneider over 16 years led to discoveries in unexpected ways. The background of the enamel artists--many former samurais--was mesmerizing. The last pages that reproduced 290 marks and signatures on the enamel in Japanese/Chinese characters with notes in English by the author offered key knowledge for authentication of the enamel in discussion.

In his introduction, Mr. Schneider described the sensual pleasures of the subject. He said, "Their coolness to the touch can offer a pleasing sensation and a contrast to plastic, wood and other materials." His voice so appropriately reflects the texture of the jewel-like enamel that he lives with.
A great book for anyone interested in the subject, save your money and just buy this one first. Excellent text and images.
