Plate by Shoji Hamada

About

Shoji Hamada (1894-1978) legendary Japanese ceramist, designated Living National Treasure, and second director of the Mingei Museum of Tokyo was, along with his great friend Bernard Leach, an internationally influential evangelist of art pottery. This plate, in stoneware with poured decoration, was exhibited as part of a 1952 traveling exhibition / workshop, accompanied by Hamada, Leach, and Soetsu Yanagi (image 5, from that era, shows Hamada throwing a pot, with Yanagi and Leach looking on). This piece was then personally bought from Mr. Hamada by a professor of art at the University of New Mexico. (Included: A letter of authenticity, written by the professor, describing the events leading to the acquisition of the piece.).
