Shinsaku was born in Tokyo in 1929 and is the second son of Shoji Hamada. He moved with the family to Mashiko the following year and as I write this, in June 2021, he continues to make pots at his father's pottery, alongside his own son, Tomoo.

A yunomi by Shinsaku that is very much in the style of his father but I find that his work has tell tale signs that distinguish it.

Like his father, Shinsaku does not sign his work but here is the box that accompanied the yunomi above.

The decoration on these 2 pots is typical of Shinsaku's work

The first image, Naomi, although stylistically it is typical of Shinsaku's work the colours are most certainly not. I imagine Tomoo asked him to have a go with his enamels or Koi at the St. Ives Gallery wanted a bit of variety.

A small teabowl with signed wood box. Note: this has an earlier red seal mark than the other examples above.

I have only started to buy his work again in the last year. I know it's not earth-shattering but I think it has it's charm and is in the Mingei tradition, more so than that of his father and his son. I sold the bowl above to someone that wanted a typical example of Shinsaku's work and it does have a more modest price tag than that of his father.
