Chop and Signature Resource

If you look at the top of the page here next to the “About” page you’ll see that the new “Chop and Signature Resource” page is now up. Either hover with your mouse over the chop image or click on it to identify the potter. There are nearly 400 chops up now, with a whole bunch more to follow as soon as I find the time to edit the photos and upload them.
I hope everyone finds the resource useful, I’ve spent hours upon hours researching potters and their marks, and I would be remiss if I didn’t share that with the community. Enjoy identifying those pots people!


About japanesepots

I've been collecting Japanese Bonsai pots for a few years, and feel that the famous, and some of the lesser known but great Japanese pot artists could do with a little more writing and exposure in English. Additionally, this blog will feature My own And others bonsai for discussion. The purpose of this blog is to further knowledge of Japanese pottery and Japanese style bonsai. If you have any questions about Japanese bonsai pottery, or would like to acquire pots by some of the potters presented in the blog, feel free to email me at
