Biography Kataro Shirayamadani
Probably the most recognized name in Rookwood Pottery* history is Kataro (Sherry) Shirayamadani, who was born in 1865. He started decorating pottery at Rookwood in 1887 and except for a couple of short periods of time, worked at the pottery until near his death in 1948.
While all of Kataro’s work is highly sought after by collectors, several of his black iris vases are on the top 10 list for prices realized for Rookwood Pottery.
