Kojima Kenji was born in Aichi prefecture in 1953, and graduated the Tokoname Ceramics High School in 1971. He moved to Iga where he studied and was immediately accepted into the Asahi Togeiten Ceramics Exhibition. The following year he moved to Okayama, where he would remain 5 years studying Bizen and the complexities of that clay and it’s firing process. He returned to Iga in 1979, where he built his own kiln on the ruins of an ancient site. He has since been exhibited at the Asahi Togeiten, Chunichi Kokusai Togeiten Ceramics Exhibition, and Nihon Togeiten National Ceramics exhibition among many others. His work is held in the Danish National Museum.
