A fine and stylish midcentury Studio Pottery Unomi hand decorated with brushwork motifs by renowned studio potter Shoji Hamada (Japanese, 1894-1978) dating from around 1950. The stoneware Unomi stands raised on a narrow round pedestal foot with a glazed rough cast finish around the foot. The wider cylindrical shaped body is hand decorated with brushwork motifs in brown and oxide glazes on a lighter with differing panels painted to either side and set within simple painted borders and between brown glazed panels. A typical and fine example of this sought after artists work who also had a long and fruitful working relationship and friendship with Bernard Leach and the Leach Pottery in St Ive’s Cornwall. Typical of his work the Unomi is not marked.
