About the artist
Born in 1935 in Mie, Japan, Genzan Taniko studied under First Generation Genzan. At present he manages his kiln while nurturing the now very few hand-painting craftsmen.
He maintains the traditions of Shobei Kinkozan and Yohei Taizan, who won high praise in Europe and the U.S. during the "era of world expositions" at the end of the 19th century for their Kyo-Satsuma works.
Every process at Taniko's kiln is done by hand, from the intricate sketches to enamel painting and gold trimmings. Each one of the works goes through a very time-consuming process, in which there are four phases of firing counting from the unglazed firing stage.
