Footnotes

  • Born the son of a third generation braid master, Shimaoka was inspired to pursue a career in ceramics after a visit to the Japan Folk Art Museum in 1938. Having graduated from the ceramics department of Tokyo Technical college Shimaoka began a three year apprenticeship with Hamada Shoji (see lots 3322-3325) in 1943. A devoted student of Hamada, Shimaoka's personal style emerged in 1950 with his use of cord impressed inlay designs, inspired by the textures found on early Jomon pottery and Korean ceramics. He built and fired his first kiln in Mashiko in 1954 and the subsequent success of Shimaoka's work established his reputation in Japan, America and Europe. In 1996 he was designated a Living National Treasure.
