Biography

Shōji Hamada (濱田 庄司, Hamada Shōji?, December 9, 1894 – January 5, 1978) was a Japanese potter. He was a significant influence on studio pottery of the twentieth century, and a major figure of the mingei folk-art movement, establishing the town of Mashiko as a world-renowned pottery centre. Hamada was born in Tokyo, Japan in 1894. He studied ceramics at Tokyo Institute of Technology under Kawai Kanijirō. Soon after, he met Bernard Leach with whom he travelled to England in 1920. Having spent three years in St Ives with Bernard Leach he returned to Japan in 1923 and eventually established his workshop in Mashiko, about 100 km north-east of Tokyo. In 1955 the Japanese government designated him a "Living National Treasure". Hamada Shoji was very supportive of young artists who moved to Mashiko such as his student Shimaoka Tatsuzo, and Kamoda Shoji, and was also important in establishing Mashiko as a destination for day tourism. Hamada died in Mashiko on January 5, 1978.
