13th Nakazato Taroemon (1923-2009)
He was born the eldest son of Living National Treasure Nakazato Taroemon, and inherited the family business. The Nakazato family was for many generations entrusted with the official kiln of the Karatsu Domain.
Aiming for a restoration of old Karatsu ware, along with his father and brother, Nakazato Shigetoshi, his works research a striking technique. This is done by turning the wheel slowly and holding wood in the center, while continuously striking the outside with a board.
He passed away from chronic myelogenous leukemia on March 12, 2009.
Nakazato Muan (Nakazato Taroemon 12th) (1895-1985)
He was the second son of the 11th generation Taroemon, but his older brother went down a different path and Shigeo came to inherit the house. He gained a grasp of the basic rules of pottery at Arita Technical School, and then at Karatsu Kiln Industry Corporation and Karatsu Brick Corporation after graduation, where he worked as an engineer. After that, he temporarily became an adopted heir of the Mutsuro family, who were lumber dealers, but following his father's death in 1924, he succeeded the name as the 12th generation Taroemon in 1927, and in the following year of 1928, he reconstructed the Ochawan kiln that had been used since the feudal government era and built a new downdraft style coal kiln.
Additionally, in 1929, he began the excavation of the old Karatsu kiln remains. From that point onward, he researched old Karatsu ware, which had died out for a long time, and endeavored to revive it, completing the beating technique and being acknowledged as an Intangible Cultural Property for Karatsu ware in 1955 and receiving the Medal with Purple Ribbon in 1967, the Fourth Class Order of the Sacred Treasure in 1969 and the Western Japan Culture Award in 1970. Furthermore, he was acknowledged as an Important Intangible Cultural Property (Living National Treasure) for Karatsu ware in 1976.
Also, during this time, he entered the Buddhist priesthood at Daitokuji Temple in Kyoto, was bestowed the name: Muan, and retired in 1959. In the same year, he had his eldest son, Tadao, succeed the name as the 13th generation Nakazato Taroemon. From that point onward, he devoted himself to creating his original pottery.
