5.0 out of 5 stars Master potters reminisce on life and form 30 Mar 2000
By J. Mark Beaver - Published on Amazon.com
Really a documented dialogue between master potters Bernard Leach and Shoji Hamada, Hamada Potter is a wealth of insight into a way of life devoted to form. Following an incredible catalog of images from Hamada's substantial body of work (nearly half of the 232 pages), the reader is treated to a back and forth reminiscence between Leach and Hamada on such subjects as their meeting, the potteries at St. Ives and Mashiko, seeing, handles, chairs, glazes... It is truly a breathtaking opportunity to be able to eavesdrop on this remarkable conversation. For anyone who appreciates art and its ability to chronicle the depth of human experience, Hamada Potter is a document that enriches as deeply as the artist it celebrates.

5.0 out of 5 stars A keeper 24 April 2007
By Peter Klove - Published on Amazon.com
I picked up a copy of this book when I first started working in clay back in the early eighties. While my style has evolved very far away from this initial influence this book has followed me from coast to coast and remains a constant touchstone. A definite must have and absolute keeper.

A very cool book with interesting back story about the working relationship and mutual inspiration between Hamada Shoji and Bernard Leach, replete with old glaze recipes Leach translated from Japanese to English.
