Sakata Shuken was a Sinophile Literati artist, son of Osaka scholar artist and Sencha aficionado Shuken (b.1869-1928), different first character) who studied under Suga Shokin (decorated Awaji-yaki pottery throughout the late Edo period).

Miura Chikken was born the third son of Miura Chikusen I. He was named the third head of the Chikusen family after the untimely death of his older brother in 1918, but returned the kiln to his brother’s son after his coming of age in 1934. That year he set out on his own path with the new name Chikken focusing on traditional Kenzan-Ninsei styles.
