Born in 1972, Yasuo Tsujiguchi is the third generation of Yamanokuchi Kiln. Before his grandfather started his own kiln,  for decades he was working as a craftsman at one of the legendary ceramic company in Amakusa area. Following his grandfather, Tsujiguchi also started his career at the same ceramic company where his grandfather used to work. After many years of experience as a craftsman at the company, he came back to his own family kiln to take over his family own business.
