Isezaki Jun (1936-)
Born the second son of famous craftsman, Isezaki Yōzan, Isezaki Jun learned pottery from his father at a young age alongside his older brother Misturu, and began making pottery in earnest after graduating from university.
In 1961, he was selected for a prize in the Japan Traditional Art Crafts Exhibition for the first time, and after continuing to be selected since then, was inaugurated as a full member of the Japan Art Crafts Association in 1966.
In 1967, he built a kiln and became an independent craftsman. In 1977, he traveled to the United States and broadened his horizons to making sculpted pottery as well, represented by his display of an ambitious stance towards contemporary objet d'art pottery, such as taking charge of the Bizen ware relief mural decorations in the main entrances of buildings including the Prime Minister's residence, Bizen City Office, Kurashiki Notre Dame Memorial Museum etc. While he was regarded highly since long before for his yohen firing techniques, such as the hidasuki pattern, in recent years he has developed pieces that are clearly different from existing Bizen ware, such as works of sculpted pottery that mixes the yohen firing effects unique to Bizen ware with black glaze. In 2004, he was appointed the fifth National Important Intangible Cultural Property (Living National Treasure) of Bizen ware.
