Based in Melbourne, Japanese potter Yoko Ozawa has been making pottery since 2003 in Japan and Australia. She discovered pottery whilst working as a graphic designer and studying Japanese painting in Tokyo. Yoko creates unique pieces inspired by Japanese slow design, an appreciation for the simple, functional and organic. Pieces take their ideas from nature, a reminder of clay’s origins in the earth and of the inherent beauty that surrounds us.
