24897 人間国宝 浜田庄司 (塩釉絵刷毛目花瓶) HAMADA Shoji
Studied under [Hazan Itaya], a heavyweight in the modern Japanese ceramic art world, to learn the basics of ceramic art, and devoted himself to glaze research with [Kanjiro Kawai], a master of the folk art world.
An excellent work by Shoji Hamada, a living national treasure who is a world-famous potter who is still a collector all over the world as a world-famous potter 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 for, such as the comfortable usability that can be said to be the true value of folk craft pottery that pursues the "beauty of use".
The soft and tasteful atmosphere unique to folk art is also a major highlight, and it is a supreme gem that is simple yet truly profound in artistry.
