In 1905, Shoraku's grandfather, the Nishikide decoration master Kichinosuke Sasaki, opened the Shoraku Kiln in front of the gates of Kiyomizu-dera Temple with the plan of making raku ware, only to later relocate the business to the valley of Kameoka, Kyoto. The Shoraku Kiln has taught three generations up until now. Shouaku, the second oldest son, together with the the third oldest son, continues to make pottery while gathering research on raku ware. He is also active as the purveyor of Daitoku-ji Temple.
