HJ97    A tenmoku plate or shallow dish with kaki trailing by Hamada Shoji.

Hamada called this combination of Tenmoku and kaki glaze with trailing the ‘speciality of the house’. Hamada became very adept at trailing glaze across plates and there is film of him performing this technique…..at 10.46 here for instance…..https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QBPWnpKOhkU

A beautiful plate that illustrates the spontaneity and carefree but not careless form of decoration that was influenced by Hamada’s exposure to English slipware while in the UK during the early 1920’s.

12 inches across.
