A large plate with Jomon Rope impressions by Living National Treasure Shimaoka Tatsuzo enclosed in the original signed wooden box. It is 12 inches (31 cm) diameter and n excellent condition.
After serving in World War II, Tatsuzo apprenticed under world famous Mashiko Mingei potter Hamada Shoji, establishing his own kiln in 1954. Working with rope patterns, Tatsuzo set out to create a style unique to himself, resulting in the piece you see here, which is quintessential Tatsuzo. In 1996 he was designated a Living National Treasure (Juyo Mukei Bunkazai or Ningenkokuho).
