A deep bowl covered in blue salt glaze by Living National Treasure Hamada Shoji enclosed in a box annotated by his son Shinsaku and titled Shio-yu Dohimo Chawan,Shoji-saku.(Do means the midriff, and himo is a line or chord). The shape is very much in the Mashiko tradition,it is thick and heavy, with a stout character standing firm and proud on a stable ring. It is a superb example of work by this most sought artist.
