  • Catalogue Essay

    'After Hamada left St Ives, he didn’t put a press mark on his work. He believed in his own originality, and he wanted that originality to be spoken for by the object, not the signature, not by the press mark. This is a strength of artistic and philosophical vision honoured in the thinking of Yanagi and distinguished Hamada’s achievement.' -J.D.
