Shimaoka Tatsuzo (1919-2007) attended the Tokyo Industrial School Ceramics department before being inducted into the army. 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. He garnered the Nihon Mingeikan Award in 1964. In 1980 he was granted the Ibaragi Prefectural Cultural Merit Award, and in 1994 The JCS (Japan Ceramics Society) gold award. In 1996 he was designated a Living National Treasure (Juyo Mukei Bunkazai or Ningenkokuho).
