H317 A square plate by Tatsuzo Shimaoka.
A square plate by Tatsuzo Shimaoka. This plate is about as typical of Shimaoka’s work as anyone could find. The border has Shimaoka’s signature decorative treatment of rope impression inlaid with white slip. The centre is kaki glaze with wax resist and Nuka and Seiji glazes making an aubergine pattern. The kaki glaze has fired well and the rope impression has a good colour contrast with the background. A really good example.
11 inches square. Clearly stamped. Comes with a signed and sealed wooden box.
