Kaneshige Toyo

Kaneshige Toyo
Bizen's first Living National Treasure Kaneshige Toyo (1896-1967) is one of the most important Bizen potters of all time. Kaneshige researched and revived the ancient Momoyama-era ways of clay preparation, kiln building, kiln loading--a key aspect--and firing. The "tsuchiaji" clay flavor of Toyo is unsurpassed on all his works, and it is he who made both the Kaneshige name, and moreover, Bizen, an integral presence in Japanese modern and contemporary ceramics.
