About Japanese Stoneware
This stunning Japanese Stoneware vase is made in the style of Shoji Hamada, 1894-1978. This piece came from a US estate with the original owners having lived in Japan in the 1960s and 1970s, and collected Japanese pottery. While not in its original signed box, the piece is in excellent condition.
Shoji Hamada is regarded as the Pablo Picasso of studio pottery, whose pieces are housed in major galleries and collections worldwide.
About the artist
Shoji Hamada was a Japanese ceramicist who was a significant influence on studio pottery of the 20th Century. In 1955 he was designated a “Living National Treasure” in Japan. Never signing his pieces, Shoji would instead sign the box each piece was presented in.
