Q about Kichizaemon line signatures

by Fuut » Jun 26th 14 3:05 pm

Hi and thank you for reading.

I have several books and pdf's about signatures used in several fields of ceramics, but one that has always stumbled me and i haven't found any clear answer to this yet is;

The Kichizaemon line of the Raku style pottery, (as far as i know) all used signatures (though different from eachother and perhaps not for all works), but from what i know the sign is really similar to the general "raku" stamp.

Does someone know and perhaps can enlighten me to different Kichizaemon masters and their signature, such as Ryonyu and Konyu, the first coming by more often. I hope i have been somewhat clear on what I'm getting at. Thank you for reading.

Si si señor.. but that doesn't give me a direct explanation now (and unfortunately i don't have say 500 bucks laying around to buy all of them. I'm simply looking for the general change in signature stamps if anyone knows.
