Itaya Hazan (1872-1963)
Graduated from Tokyo Art School (Tokyo University of the Arts) in the Sculpting Department.
Learned alongside students such as Okakura Tenshin and Takamura Kōun.
He built a home at Tabata which also doubled as a workshop, and after installing a downdraft style kiln, he devoted himself to creating pottery in order to utilize the fruits of the research on pottery he had engaged in up until that point.
In 1907, he exhibited his work, "Jisei Kinshimon Kesshoyu Vase" at the Tokyo Industrial Exposition and won third place prize.
After winning many prizes, he was appointed an Imperial Household Artist in 1934. In 1945, his home and workshop was burned down in the Bombing of Tokyo. He temporarily evacuated to his hometown of Shimodate before rebuilding a workshop in Tabata again in 1950. In 1953, he became the first potter to receive the Order of Culture. In 1955, he declined the offer to be designated as a Living National Treasure.
As a potter who studied the foundations of art, he is a pioneer for establishing contemporary pottery art that is different from traditional pottery.
His representative works include, "Hokosaiji Chinkamon Vase" (property of Sen-oku Hakuko Kan Museum, Important Cultural Properties), "Saiji Enjumon Vase" (property of Idemitsu Museum of Arts), "Saiji Kinkamon Vase" (property of Tsurui Museum of Art), etc.
Recently, we’ve been having trouble with UK postal services. There have been frequent occurrences of packages being returned without notice.
I contacted the post office and they explained that even though they give notices to customers, the customers don’t come to pick up their package. However, it seems they don’t contact customers or leave a calling card practically since many of them have complained about never receiving a package or even a notice from the post office to me.
Additionally, in the past, the post office would keep packages for 2 weeks before sending them back but now, they only keep them for 1 week.
In order to solve this issue, UK residents will be sent an email notifying them that their package has arrived at the post office. If the package hasn’t arrived on time, UK residents should contact their local post office for more information.

This fabulous teabowl, imitating Song Dynasty Jizhou ware, is a rare work by Itaya Hazan. Hazan was patronised by Sazo Idemitsu and most of his work went into the Idemitsu Collection. Consequently little of it appears in the West (The BM has a vase). There were only ever five artists made Teishitsu Gigeiín (Artists to the Imperial Household), the forerunner of the LIving National Treasure designation, and Hazan was awarded in 1934 after Seifu Yohei III(1893), Makuzu Kozan (1895) and Suwa Sozan I and Ito Tozan I (both 1916). He completes my collection.
