S1 A Large plate or charger by Tatsuzo Shimaoka.
Tatsuzo Shimaoka was the son of a rope and braid maker. After apprenticing with Hamada he eventually developed a personal style of decoration that involved patterning the surface of his pots with rope impressions and then filling the impressed surface with white slip. This method of decoration has its roots in 15th and 16th century Korean ceramics. He was later awarded the status of National Living Treasure in recognition of his work with this technique.
This is a large plate with a distinct and very typical pattern. It is clearly stamped on the reverse.
12.5 inches across.
Comes with a signed and sealed wooden box.
