S52   A Pair of ‘his and hers’ Yunomi by Shimaoka Tatsuzo.

I knew Shimaoka as much as a four or five time visitor could know him. We went out to dinner a couple of times and shared tea in his living room. He was a gentle and kindly man who liked to laugh and hear a joke. You can see one of our meetings in the film ‘ A Passion for Pots’ on the ‘video’ page on this website.

As Hamada’s most favoured and famous pupil he became a National Living Treasure for his work with rope inlay decoration.

Tallest  3.75 inches.
