Kinkozan

Kinkozan is a family of ceramicists active in Kyoto, established by Kinkozan Gen'emon in mid 17th century. At first the family produced utilitarian commodities, later moving on to ceramics for chado- tea ceremony. After the Meiji Restoration in mid 19th century they became famous for decorating Satsuma pottery with designs of exquisite detail and class, painted with brushes as thin as a single hair.
