Takahashi Dohachi I (Shofutei) (1740 - 1804)

The following text regarding Takahashi Dohachi I is from Captain Frank Brinkley's book, Japan: It's History Art & Literature, Vol. 8.

"The first Dohachi, a retainer of the Kame-yama fief in Ise, was born in 1740. His family name was Takahashi. He established himself at Awata in the Horeki era (1750 - 1763), and having studied the keramic art under Eisen of Kyo-mizu, began the manufacture of pottery. He was an expert bamboo carver, as well as a potter, and he assumed the artist name Shofutei Kuchu. He died in 1804, and was succeeded by his son, the second Dohachi, to whose skill the name chiefly owes its eminence."
