Born the third son of Ogata Soken of Kariganeya, a kimono fabrics wholesaler in Kyoto, with Ogata Korin as one of his older brothers.
He studied under Nonomura Ninsei, learning to create pottery. When he was around 37 years of age, he opened a kiln in Kiyotaki, right near the Ninsei Kiln, and as it was located in northwest Kyoto (which in Japanese, is referred to as the cardinal direction of "Inui", a word that can be pronounced as "Ken"), he inscribed the signature of "Kenzan" into his products since then.
His style was influenced by Ninsei, his master, and Korin, his older brother, using many shades of color in the painted earthenware he produced. He also excelled in not only pottery, but art and writing as well, and he moved to Edo in his later years, gaining fame as a writer and pottery artist.
The first generation Kenzan had no children or stepchildren. The name of Kenzan has been inherited by subsequent generations, but these successions are not based on blood relations or master to student relationships, and are only through people calling themselves by the name.

The third generation Kenzan Shokosai, Miyata Yahei
The fifth generation Kenzan Nishimura Myakuan,
The sixth generation Kenzan Miura Kenya,
The daughter of the sixth generation who was supposed to inherit the seventh generation, Ogata Kennyo, made arrangements with fellow older apprentice Bernard Leach and decided that the name of Kenzan will come to an end with the sixth generation in 1969.
Up to 50 potters, researchers, authors, critics etc., concerned added their signatures of approval at the time.
After that, Yamamoto Josen has declared himself as the eight generation Kenzan, but this has not been accepted by the Association in Honor of Kenzan.
