Can anyone identify the kiln/potter associated with these chop marks? I was told it was Tokoname, but can't find these marks anywhere. Help!?
Thanks,
Brian

Thanks Greg, but this is the list I was comparing against and couldn't find it...
 
That's the English list, but I also looked at the Japanese pages (which you may have done as well). I'm hoping someone chimes in with a better knowledge. Maybe Bill Valavanis would have a better handle on it....
 
Try here, though these are mostly for artisan-made pots, and yours looks to me like a mass-production mark: http://bonsaipotplaza.com/

Thanks JKL, been through that one too, and the closest I could find was 2 characters from one of the marks match 2 characters from "Rakkan-Yixing-Zisha"...maybe it's Chinese?
