Japanese Graphics

I went dawdling down Clement Street the other day and stopped in at Kamei Restaurant Supply. And while walking down the isle found these treasures...

A whole mess of bowls covered in traditional Japanese patterns. I love how graphic and modern they are but also how old (the patterns not the bowls). It totally inspired me and made me start thinking about the fact that I know little about the art history of ceramics. Bummer.

Does anyone have good reading suggestions?

Do dutch windmills, Otemi embroidery, or Indian paisley make you go gaga? Let us now what your favorite types of patterns are! ;)
