Ichiyo - Sansyu Ichyio
Sansyu Ichiyo was born in 1902, in Aichi prefecture. He was a self taught potter, after working in the family China store, and later his own in Tokyo, where he educated and inspired himself with the pottery he sold. His work was much sought after in Japan, and his students include some of Japan's best, including Ito Gekko. Ichiyo passed away in 1985, and his pots are now very collectable.
