Rokubeygama was opened in 1771 in the Gojyosaka area of Kyoto by its founder, Kiyomizu Rokubey. After 250 years, Rokubeygama is currently in its eighth generation and has become a well-respected family of artistic pottery. Following the rise in popularity of Kyo-yaki, the principals of each generation have since been creating pieces using this traditional technique. Under the supervision of the current owner Kiyomizu Rokubey, Rokubeygama continues to produce works that suit the modern lifestyle such as dishes, vases, ornaments, and tea sets.
