"It always amazes me what miracles can happen with a lump of clay in just the right hands"
Many of the photos shown are in my collection. I will share what I learn about the kilns, artists, styles, and marks. This is a work in progress. Come along with me as I learn.
Because my blog traffic has grown, I will add marks from various other sources.
** NOTICE: I can no longer take readers queries on personal pieces. General comments and questions still accepted.

Ei-Sei-Sha: Ceramics of Himeji 姫路永世舎 (社)
This mark was a long time coming but am so pleased to finally know its origin.
Ei Sei Sha was established in 1877 (明治十年) in Himeji by Matsumura Tokimasa (松村ときまさ) who was born in 1838 in Hizen Arita Saga Prefecture.
