Yamane Seigan was born in
1952 and is a member of the Hagi Association of Ceramic Artists. He is self
taught and works out of the Kousaian Kiln, which he
opened in 1987.
It is said that Yamane gets up at every
morning in order to climb a nearby mountain to watch the sunrise and then
begins potting by . He
continues with this throughout the day until stopping in mid-evening to eat.
He says that it is the whole creative process rather than just the end
product that he finds fulfilling.
shows the glaze crawl effect used by many Hagi artists for the typical Hagi
white glazed wares. However this glaze, which Yamane calls “Black Japan”, is
as far as I am aware only used by him in this way.
