About the Artist
Yuta Segawa studied Industrial, Interior and Craft Design at Musashino Art University in Tokyo, before completing an internship at The Pottery Work Shop in Jingdezhen, China, and an MA at Camberwell College of Arts in London. He specialises in producing miniature pots, which are hand-thrown and hand-finished, using more than a thousand specially developed glazes which encompass the entire colour spectrum. Positioning them in large groups, to magical effect, or as individual pieces that sit in the palm of the hand, his work plays with the imagination. He works with various clays such as porcelain, terracotta and stoneware, experimenting with texture, and has had solo exhibitions in London, The Netherlands, Dubai, Tokyo and China.
