In 1919, the founder of Yozan was attracted to the mesh pattern of the Awata yaki, so much so that he began manufacturing Kyo-Satsuma in the Higashiyama Ward of Kyoto City. Since then, Ogawayozan have devoted themselves to crafting this intricately designed pottery. Kyo-Satsuma has become well renowned across many different countries in forms such as vases, teapots, and decorative dishes. In Japan, Kyo-Satsuma pottery is highly desirable for tea ceremonies and burning traditional incense. In 1993, the second generation Yozan was awarded the honour of being named Traditional Industrial Excellence Engineer by the Governor of Kyoto. Shortly after, in 1996, the third generation Yozan was certified as a successor to Kyoto’s crafts technology.
