Shoji Hamada (1894-1978), the potter representative of Mashiko, was a lifelong lover of travelling. He travelled all over the West , including the UK, France, the US and Mexico, and cultivated dialogue through ceramics with the local people everywhere he went. At Mashiko Museum of Ceramic Art, we are continuing to build on our collection, beginning with works from the UK where Hamada first laid his foundation as a potter, extending to other excellent ceramics from the West. In this exhibition, we will introduce approximately 60 pieces in relation to Hamada, with a focus on our new collection of works by overseas ar tists. We hope to convey the allure of Western ceramics through the life of Shoji Hamada, the extraordinary potter.
