Satsuma ware made by Gyozan 暁山, Gyozan Kyoto pottery, a family pottery, 1920's 1930's.
Okada Gyozan (Gyouzan) and his studio are well known for their work with Kiyomizu (old Kyoto) Satsuma. Gyozan Kiln has its origins in the 17th century. Around the beginning of the 18th century Gyouzan Kiln was listed by the Emperor’s family as one of the 5 fine kilns of Kyoto.
At the beginning of the 20th century, the company began to export the reproductions of Ninsei, Kenzan and other original Kyo-Satsuma ware under the name of Gyozan to the USA and Europe.
