Much is online about him and we implore you to read more, the Raku Museum in Kyoto has this link: https://www.raku-yaki.or.jp/e/kichizaemon/index.html Our gallery is delighted to have recently acquired two of his more traditional chawan in the classic Raku tones of Black and Red(Sold). Each in prefect condition with signed boxes by Raku and Iemoto of Tea.
