Sue wares, high-fired stoneware potted on a wheel, were first introduced to Japan in the early 5th to 7th century AD from Korea. With a blue-green color scheme and with forms reminiscent of metal wares, Sue wares influenced the emergence of indigenous Japanese kiln sites, namely Tokoname, Bizen, and Seto. Tsubo (jars/vases), kame (large jars), and tall-footed sake cups, are just some of the works pictured out of 113 color photographs of works, while 72 pieces are photographed in black and white. With the images, the history and the perception of Sue wares are discussed. All in Japanese, except for a brief index listing in English.
