Matsuyama Gaei (1916 - 1963)
After the outbreak of the Sino-Japanese War, the first generation Matsuyama Gaei went to mainland China as consul, where he was awed by the pottery he saw and took up studying the craft. In 1947, Matsuyama returned to Japan, where he built a kiln in Tatsunocho-Tominaga, Hyogo Prefecture. Under the guidance of Shimizu Rokube from Kyoto, Matsuyama began his rise as a pottery craftsman.
Matsuyama moved his kiln to Kamikajo Town in 1950, where he completed his yohen temoku glaze the following year and produced his kujaku pottery.
In 1963, the first generation Gaei Matsuyama suffered a stomach disease and instructed his wife Tsutako in the art of Yohen Kujaku Tenmoku glaze before passing away.
In the following year, Tsutako inherited the name of the second generation Gaei Matsuyama and continued producing pottery. She had many of her works displayed as personal exhibitions at art museums in France.
Currently, Tsutako's oldest daughter, Kazuko, is the successor of the third generation Matsuyama Gaei and continues to produce pottery. Unfortunately, the kujaku furnace is expected to finally retire in the third generation.
