MATSUO grew up in Arita, the original city of ceramics, and from his infancy studied under Sofu the first; at the age of 20, to master the production of tea utensils, he moved to Hagi and studied the art of Hagi ware. Three years later, he opened his kiln and pottery studio in Hagi, and began production of Hagi ware. He also engaged in artistic activities and submitted his works to the Nitten Exhibitions and Japan Contemporary Art Crafts Exhibitions. Since 2002, he started placing his works in the Japan Traditional Art Crafts Exhibition. The submitted pieces include hakuji (white porcelain), seihakuji (pale blue porcelain), and iroe porcelain painted in overglaze enamels, which he mastered during his years in Arita, and at present he plays an active part as a full member of the Japan Kogei Association. At the Sofu Kiln, he produces both porcelain and Hagi ware works.
