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.

Hagi ware is closely associated with the Tea Ceremony in
Japan and this teabowl (chawan) shows the glaze crawl effect used by many Hagi artists but the brown glaze is something that I have only seen Yamane experiment with. The body of the teabowl is made from a darker clay than usual and the seal mark is stamped into an applied roundel of lighter clay. Besides the signed wooden box the teabowl also comes supplied with a cleaning cloth marked with the more recently used potter’s seal as seem on the box as well.
