Kato Shunji
1864 – 1945

seto pottery

Kato Shunji was born the child of potter Kato Genju of Owari-Seto toward the end of the feudal era. In 1890, he went independent when he was bestowed an elliptical emblem bearing the characters for “Shunji” from Tokugawa Yoshiakira, the 18th generation head of the Tokugawa clan. Later, in 1909, the 19th generation Tokugawa clan head, Tokugawa Yoshichika, bestowed upon him a golden aoi (‘hollyhock’) emblem. Thereafter, he made works such as bowls for the Tokugawa clan using a kiln named Aoi-gama.
His works favor a classical style, and shine for their use of traditional techniques such as Oribe, Ki-Seto, and Setoguro.
