A beautiful example of Shoji’s flattened bottles with resist-glazed patterns in a rich rust-colored Kaki-yu enclosed in a wooden box annotated by his son Hamada Shinsaku. This has everything we would expect from Shoji. It is 7 x 12 x 20 cm (3 x 5 x 8 inches) and in excellent condition.
Hamada Shoji was born in Tokyo, and enrolled in the Tokyo Technical University at the age of 19. In 1918 he met the important British potter Bernard Leach, and the history of ceramic arts was forever changed. One of the most influential and sought after of all Japanese Ceramic artists. There is no shortage of reading material for those who would like to learn more about this potter.
