A pair of stoneware Tatsuzo Shimaoka Unomi, in graduated size, with inlaid rope pattern (jomon zogon ) with round panels painted with a linear motif containing an iron red, yellow and green enamel designs. Impressed potter's seal. Complete with signed original wood box. Tatsuzo Shimaoka (10-27-1919 to 12 - 11- 2007)was born on the 27th October 1919 in Tokyo and in 1942, he graduated from the Tokyo Institute of Technology. Between 1946 and 1949 he studied pottery under Hamada Shoji. In 1953 he built his own kiln and studio next to Hamada Shoji in Mashiko which he fired for the first time in 1954. He has worked there ever since, although traveling widely, teaching and lecturing in the United States and Canada on many occasions. His signature technique of jomon zogon (rope impressed inlay) earned him the honor of Japanese Living National Treasure in 1996. Shimaoka's work can be found in some of the most notable museums worldwide, including the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, the Royal Ontario Museum, Toronto, and the Tokyo Folk Art Museum. Recently, pieces have been accepted in to collections of the museum at the Rhode Island School of Design, and the Israel Museum, Jerusalem.
