SH18   A tea cup or yunomi by Shinsaku Hamada.

The cup has been wax resisted and then dipped into a local ochre slip resulting in two ‘windows’ of paler colour. After biscuit firing the iron motif was painted inside the ‘windows’ and then glazed overall. The motif on this cup is one that Shinsaku uses often and has become something of a signature for his work.

Shinsaku Hamada is Shoji Hamada’s son and continues to make pots in Mashiko at the age of 88.

3.5 inches across.
