Maske received a doctorate in Japanese Art History from Oxford University. In 2007 he was a Fulbright Research Fellow in the Beijing University Department of Fine Arts, where he studied contemporary Chinese art ceramics. His book, Potters and Patrons in Edo Period Japan: Takatori Ware and the Kuroda Domain (Ashgate, 2011), provides the most extensive investigation of Takatori ware production history published to date.

He completed his university degree in Ceramics at Kyoto Saga University of Arts, and took the title of the fifteenth generation in 2001. Mr. Kamei has been carrying on the tradition of Takatori ware for more than thirty years. In addition to exhibiting and promoting Takatori ware around Japan, he is an active teacher, training students in ceramics at a number of institutions around his home city of Fukuoka.
