Kamoda Shoji (1933–1983, Mashiko, Tochigi prefecture) trained in Kyoto but sought independence in Mashiko. As the result of his meteoric career and early death, few of his works have been acquired outside Japan. These two dishes (S2010.31-32) were exhibited in the 1966 1st Japan Arts Festival, from which the Hauges purchased them. The unglazed surface and the austere ash glaze reveal Kamoda’s attraction to early medieval ceramics at that early phase of his career. Unlike the lush throwing of “Momoyama revival” artists, the disciplined clarity of the subtly simple form has more in common with European potters such as Lucie Rie and Hans Coper.
