Photos Of Tatsuzo Shimaoka with his Deshis, his teacher Shoji Hamada and as a Young Man.

During his apprenticeship, Shimaoka used to stand behind his teacher while he was throwing and imitate his movements on the wheel, while standing behind him.    Mrs. Hamada once told Shimaoka that her husband Shoji would talk to Yanagi in his sleep.   Shimaoka admired that friendship and said he wished he had a friend like Yanagi was to Hamada.
