About the potter:

Ikkou, whose real name is Kazuhiro Watanabe, is a highly regarded Japanese potter known for his exceptional bonsai containers. Born in 1956, he is the son of the renowned potter Shouzan (Akira/Masami Watanabe) and his mother, Fusyu. Ikkou celebrated his 60th birthday in November 2016, marking a significant milestone in his prolific career.

Ikkou is especially noted for his superbly glazed shohin containers, although he also creates unglazed and chuhin-sized pots. His work includes a variety of glazes, with his oribe glaze being particularly notable and comparable to those of other top potters like Koyo and Ino. Ikkou’s signature style has evolved over the years; earlier works are signed as “Kazuhiro made” (一弘造印), while more recent pieces bear the signature “Ikkou made” (壱興造記).
