HJ27 Small albarello vase by Hamada Shoji.
Hamada made quite a few pieces in this form and in various sizes. This one has a particularly pleaseing proportion and the iconic ‘broken straw’ motif in iron pigments. Hamada used two different iron pigments…one was made from iron from a local blacksmith and the other was a combination of tenmoku glaze with iron.
