Hisamoto Kouichi was born in Okayama Prefecture in 1953. He began to pot in 1975 when he was making
glazed wares, as an apprentice to the potter, Higashibara san. He trained with Shimamura Hikaru from 1981
when he began to make Bizen ware and built his own noborigama in 1988. More recently he has set up a new pottery
and kiln, which he calls “Bizengama”.
