Height 9.2 cm

Born in Tokyo as the eldest son of Kumihimo Shimaoka Yonekichi in 1918, after graduating from the Ceramics Department of Tokyo Institute of Technology, he became a member of Mashiko's Shoji Hamada at the age of 27 after joining the army and demobilizing.
Tatsuzo Shimaoka is a writer who created numerous works in the field of folk art using a unique technique called "Jomon inlay" from his independence at the age of 35 until his death at the age of 88 in 2007.
When using the Jomon technique, the braid produced by his father, Yoneyoshi, was initially used, so it can be imagined that the idea was created from the environment in which Tatsuzo was born.
