Tatsutzo Shimaoka. 1919-2007 (I can hear Neely correcting my pronunciation of this guys name... ) This guy, no matter who is saying his name, is one of my favorites. He was one of the guys I learned about after getting to know Hamada, Leach, the Mingei Movement, and the Unknown Craftsman.
Good strong pots. Rope inlay equals awesome.
I came across this online show of his. Check it out it's really really good!
