Learned the basics of ceramic art by studying under the modern Japanese ceramic art tycoon [Itaya Hazan], and devoted himself to glaze research with the master of the folk art world [Kawai Kanjiro].
The work of the living national treasure [Shoji Hamada], who has pushed Mashiko ware, which is famous for folk art pottery, to the essence of the art field and still has collectors all over the world as a world-famous potter.
It is a work that you can feel the ultimate folk art beauty that Professor Shoji Hamada aimed at, such as the comfortable usability that can be said to be the true value of folk art pottery pursuing "beauty of use".
It is a gem with a simple yet profound artistry.
