H185 A press moulded bottle by Hamada Shoji.
A press moulded bottle by Hamada Shoji. Tenmoku glaze with kaki trailing.
A bottle with Hamada’s signature glaze trailing. Unfortunately, the tenmoku glaze has run a little bit and now two beads of glaze protrude slightly below the base of the pot which means it stands unevenly just a little. However, this is a minor worry and luckily nobody has tried to rectify the fault by grinding. The piece is still a substantial and beautiful pot and would grace any collection. 9 inches tall.
