Hamada Shōji, who was a potter much involved with the Mingei Movement alongside people like Yanagi Sōetsu, loved Okinawa and would visit Okinawa every year to create works at Tsuboya. Okinawa no Tōki (Ceramics from Okinawa) published in 1972 by the Ryūkyū Telegraph and Telephone Public Corporation contains excellent examples of Okinawan ceramics from the Ryūkyū Kingdom period to the modern day. It is an outstanding publication for anyone who wishes to learn more about ceramics from Okinawa.
