Kohgiku Yamaoka was born in 1942. He worked under Zenjiroh Ueyama for 10 years, and then opened his own kiln in 1969. He excels at bright and vivid works. Ninsei Nonomura was an artist who developed Kyo-Yaki style in the early 17th century. He was best known for his definitive pottery wheel technique and printing on Kyo-Yaki. Kenzan Ogata (1663-1743) was one of the first to paint four seasons flowers on pottery in Japan.
