Enigmatic traces from the craftsman’s fingers wisp through the rich red on the side of this mug by Hamada Shoji enclosed in the original signed wooden box. It is 4 inches (10 cm) diameter, 3-1/2 inches (9 cm) tall and in fine condition.
Hamada Shoji was born in Tokyo, and enrolled in the Tokyo Technical University at the age of 19.
