Nakamura Donen (1876-1937)
Originally, he studied pottery under the 4th generation Dohachi in Kyoto, but he visited and trained in various regions throughout the country as well as Korea and China. Afterwards, he came to Nagoya due to an invitation from Takamatsu Sadaichi, a wealthy merchant there, and he began to create pottery in the same area. He often produced Raku ware and Joseon style tea pottery. He passed away due to illness at 62 years of age.
Around the time of the second generation, Sokuchusai Sosa of the Omotesenke school, gave the name, Yagoto kiln. The fifth generation is currently active.
Nakamura Donen II (1906-1972)
Born January 7th. While studying under his father, he trained in the tea ceremony under the instruction of the tea master Yoshida Josei. In the year Showa 12, he was named successor to his father following his father's death. However, he discontinued his business in the year Showa 18 due to the war and, after training in the tea ceremony once again at Omotesenke, was given the name Yagotokama by the tea master Sokuchusai and began making pottery in the Raku style. He trained under the instruction of Morikawa Nyoshun'an and in the year Showa 40, he won a prize at the Tokai Traditional Crafts Exhibition for a black Raku-style tea bowl he displayed called Amagumo. After that, he was invited to various areas of Japan, including Daitokuji's Zuihoin and Chita's Koboji, to construct kilns and make tea bowls. More so than in his younger years, he grew close with people such as Masuda Don'no and Mingei potter Bernard Leach, beside whom he devoted himself to researching Raku wares and creating marvelous Koetsu reproduction tea bowls. He passed away in April at the age of 67.
For his artist's seal, he continued to use his father's, as well as a hexagonal seal and a seal reading "Yagoto" written in cursive script.
