Studied under Hazan Itaya, a heavyweight in the modern Japanese ceramic art world, to learn the basics of ceramic art, and immersed himself in glaze research with Kanjiro Kawai, a master of the folk art world.
A work by Shoji Hamada, a living national treasure who is still a collector all over the world as a world-famous ceramic artist who has pushed Mashiko ware, which is famous for folk pottery, into the realm of art.
This work is a work that you can feel the ultimate folk craft beauty that Mr. Shoji Hamada aimed at, such as comfortable usability that can be said to be the true value of folk craft pottery that pursues "beauty of use".
It is a gem that is simple but has a truly profound artistry.
