Makuzu Kozan I (1842 - 1916) (Scroll down for more information.)
Miyagawa Kozan, born Miyagawa Toranosuke in Kyoto, took over the family business in 1860 at the age of 18. In 1870 he opened a shop in Yokohama and started creating Satsuma-style wares with high-relief modeled figures. However, when there was not a demand for that type of ware, he began to create Chinese-style porcelain. This earned him greater fame and success, and in 1896 he was elected to the Teishitsu Gigei-in (equivalent to present day Living National Treasure).
