Porcelain by Kiyomizu Pottery（Kiyomizu Rokubei)
Kiyomizu Rokubei was a Japanese Edo period porcelain artist who worked in Kyoto. His work is characterized by a sophisticated style and use of colour, as well as a mastery of techniques such as enamelling and painting on porcelain. He has also known for his signature blue and white wares.
Kiyomizu Rokubei was born in Kyoto in 1637 to a family of potters. He began his career as a painter, working under the name Sanraku. He later changed his name to Rokubei, after his teacher, Kiyomizu Sanraku.
Rokubei's work is known for its delicate beauty and craftsmanship. He often used enamel colours on his porcelain, which was a difficult technique to master. He also painted on porcelain, another difficult process.
Rokubei's work was very popular in his day, and he received many commissions from the nobility and the imperial court. He also exported his work to China and Europe, where it was much sought after.
Rokubei died in Kyoto in 1708. His son, Kiyomizu Ritsuo, took over his workshop and continued his father's tradition of creating beautiful and technically skilled porcelain.
