Shinsaku was born in Tokyo, the year before the family moved to Mashiko, and was the second son of Shoji HAMADA. His training was in Art and Craft at Waseda University, before apprenticing himself to his father. He visited the Leach Pottery in St Ives in 1963, traveling with his father on lecture tour. In 1999 he completed his 30th solo exhibition of his work with the Tokyo Department Store, with whom his brother also exhibited. [See Atsuya HAMADA].
