Shoji Hamada

I think this is an appropriate time to think about the potters of Japan, as well as everyone else there.
Hamada studied ceramics at the Tokyo Institute of Technology and then met Bernard Leach.  Hamanda went to England with Leach.  After a few years he returned to Japan and started his workshop in Mashiko.
The Japanese government designated him a living treasure.
