By Appointment is best. You might get lucky just popping by, but a great deal of the month I am out visiting artists or scouring up new items, so days in the gallery are limited.
In accordance with the request of local authorities our gallery in Kyoto will be closed from April 1st until further notice.
Hamada Shinsaku Modern Japanese Mashiko Plate
Please refer to our stock # 1561 when inquiring.
Kaki-yu swirls over the black glaze belting the reusset colored surface of this quintessential Mashiko plate by Hamada Shinsake enclosed in the original signed wooden box titled Kuro-yu Sabi Tsutsu Kaki Sara. It is 11 inches (27.5 cm) diameter and in excellent condition.
Hamada Shinsaku was born the second son of Hamada Shoji in Tokyo in 1929. At a very young age his father moved the family to Mashiko, where he would start one of the most successful kilns of the 20th century propagating the Mingei philosophy of function as the basis for art. Shinsaku worked closely with his father, slowly taking over the reins from the early 70s. In 1980 his work was purchased for the prefectural governor’s residence, and in 1986 was acquired by the Brooklyn Museum of Art. He works alongside his son Tomo at the kiln established by his father, and has slowly ceded the reins to him in true mingei style, silently passing the torch to the next generation.
