Kato Hajimu had work included in the “Great Shigaraki
Exhibition” in 2001 alongside past and modern Shigaraki masters, so cementing
his position in the Shigaraki hierarchy. Wood-fired beer drinking vessels are
said to enhance the flavour of Japanese beers but, as a real ale drinker
myself, I am perhaps not the best person to comment. Note: - Kato-san’s seal
can be seen at the bottom left of the final image above.
