Karatsu pottery was first made by Korean potters who migrated to the Japanese island of Kyushu in the late sixteenth century. To learn the forms and glazes associated with Karatsu ware, Ishiguro lived in the town of Karatsu to work with local potters and study fragments excavated from old kiln sites. One of his Karatsu-style bowls won a silver medal at the 1937 Paris International Fair. The artist continued to explore the style throughout his career.
