Join Japanese Master Potter Tomoo Hamada, second son of Shinsaku Hamada and grandson of Shoji Hamada, for a half-day demonstration of his work.

Hamada has exhibited, lectured and given workshops internationally and was integral in helping the pottery community of Mashiko rebuild from the devastating Tohoku earthquake of 2011. Hamada’s work will be featured at Pucker Gallery beginning Friday, June 7th.
