Further information

The Kinkôzan was a family of Kyoto potters established during the Edo period. In the Meiji period Kinkôzan Sôbee VI began using the Satsuma ware technique. His son Kinkôzan VII continued this work, actively exploring new designs for export ware and participating in international exhibitions.
