Biography: Inoue Manji was born in Arita, Saga Prefecture, Japan in 1929. In 1946 he became an apprentice under master ceramic artists Sakaida Kakiemon and Okugawa Chuemon, where he began studying techniques in creating hakuji 白磁 (white celadon porcelain). From 1959, while working at the Saga Prefecture Ceramics Research Center, he also did his own research on different shapes and glazes. He was eventually able to completely develop his own technique for white celadon. In 1995 he was designated Japanese Living National Treasure for this technique. Presently he is an advisor for the Nihon Kogei Kai (Japanese National Crafts Association) and is chairman for the Arita Ceramic Association.
