early edo period
A potter from Owari (Aichi Prefecture). He is said to have been active during the Keicho period (1596-1615). He is also known as Hachiemon. From excavations at the Yuemon kiln in the late Edo period, many bowls with the seal of “Kagetsugu” in small oval have been excavated.
His ancestors worked as potter until the abolition of the Owari clan, and his predecessor Keisen immersed himself in blue-and-white porcelain while making pottery, making products for Ise Shrine and Meiji Shrine and others. The current generation continues the tradition and works at the forefront of modern culture. He has been active in film, publishing and television. Solo exhibitions at the Takashimaya Department Store in Nihonbashi and Osaka.
