Mashiko Guinomi by Hamada Shoji
The current issue of Tohsetsu–the Japan Ceramic Society’s journal–has on the cover a Hamada Shoji work and the main feature of the issue is the relationship of Hamada with Bernard Leach and fellow Mashiko potters. The Hamada photo courtesy of Tohsetsu. Here is a fine Hamada guinomi and rare for its simplicity of glazing, which does have a lot of character. In perfect condition, 5.2cm.tallx8.3cm.wide, box signed by Hamada Shinsaku.
