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. Besides being a potter Yamane is an expert in
karate, which obviously requires a different set of skills.
This footed bowl exhibits another of Hagi’s traditional glaze techniques that
is known as “Firefly”. Yamane’s personal seal is impressed within the foot
ring – see final picture.
