Shōji Hamada was born in Kawasaki, Japan, and studied ceramics at the Tokyo Institute of Technology. After seeing an exhibition of Bernard Leach’s work in Tokyo, Hamada sought him out, and the two developed a close friendship. Hamada traveled to England with Leach, spending three formative years working with him at his pottery in St. Ives. Throughout their careers, Leach and Hamada revived traditional pottery production and were instrumental in spreading ideas of simplicity, beauty, and harmony in ceramics far beyond their homes.
