Yuta Segawa is a highly acclaimed ceramic artist, born in Shizuoka, Japan, and now living and working in London. 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. Ceramic skills honed during his training are combined in his characteristic miniature pots.
Segawa experiments with texture and uses various clays such as porcelain, terracotta and stoneware when hand-throwing his small-scale vases. Hand-finished using more than five hundred specially developed glazes which encompass the entire colour spectrum, when positioned in large groups the vessels have a magical effect. Additionally, as individual pieces that sit in the palm of the hand, Segawa’s work plays with the imagination and explores the possibilities of working on a very small scale. His work has been exhibited internationally.
