Hattori is a graduate of the University of Koblenz of Germany from the Institute of Artistic Ceramics Applied Sciences. While employed in a German company, in 1977 (Showa 52) he embarked on the path of creating bonsai pots. Hattori debuted with his shohin pots at the national exhibition (Zenkoku Shobachi Meisakuten) in 1980 (Showa 55). He received the Nagamitsu Tokoname Ceramic Arts Award two years in a row, in 1998 and 1999 (Heisei 10-11). He does not make his pots using a mold, and while he makes the classic shapes, rectangular, square, hexagonal, elliptical, round and other shapes, the varieties are abundant. Its use of enamels is also intended to use as many of the standard colors as possible, but its ceramics have many nooks and crannies in the corners and edges for the colors to change in the oven. There are many connoisseurs who enjoy these unintended effects, so they are exported a lot. Hattori, he is undoubtedly one of the most prolific artists. Throughout Japan it has many admirers. One aspect of the Hattori is the patina that develops very quickly adding even more interest to your pots.
