He was born in Kyoto as a great-grandchild of the fifth generation Rokubei Kiyomizu Family, a renowned family of Potters. In 2011, he launched a brand called "Tokinoha" with a concept of pottery that embraces the everyday life. In 2015, he opened "HOTOKI" with shops, cafes and ceramics classes as a place for people to enjoy pottery more casually.
In 2019, he launched a brand "Siro" that approaches the creation of a new vessel through a dialogue between the chef and the potter.
The chef and the potter share their beliefs and passion through dialogues. Production begins with a common image amongst the two.
In some cases, the ideal images of the products are finalized by creating a prototype. (The cost for prototype production is required separately.)
