Masahiro Mori

Born: 1927, Japan, Saga Prefecture   Died: 2005, Japan, Nagasaki Prefecture

Ceramicist. Mori became chief designer for Hakusan Porcelain Company and set up his own company in 1978. He is recognised for his design of pieces for daily use, showing that artistic form can be created in mass-produced porcelain. Mori’s work has been exhibited widely and he has received many awards for design. The first was in 1960 for his design for a soya sauce bottle, a shoyusashi, and more recently won the gold prize of the Japan Ceramic Society in 1999.
