About

TAKAUCHI Shûgô was a pupil of Shôji Hamada (1894-1978), who was designated a Living National Treasure in recognition of his work as a potter and as leader of the folk art (mingei) movement. It was Hamada who established the town of Mashiko as the centre of the folk art movement and attracted many potters there. Takauchi, one of the leading mingei artists working in Mashiko, is particularly noted for making the biggest plates by wheel in Japan. In 1980 Takauchi won a prize at the 7th International Biennale of Ceramics in Vallauris, France.
