I’ve had the 5 easily acquired Japanese multiple potter books for quite awhile now, but other than as “pottery porn” their usefulness to some degree is negligible. I’m sure many others of you have these same books and would agree.
At the request of my German friend Heike Van Gunst, I’ve undertaken the task of identifying the potters and translating the names in them and will feature the keys on the blog and in a new page titled “Pottery Book Keys”. I hope everyone finds this useful, I learned a lot just making up the keys!
If you don’t have the books, and would like to acquire them, they can be ordered from Yoshoen at
