Masahiko Yamamoto Feldspar Tsubo 4


Dimensions: H 27.5cm x W 28.5cm

Materials: ceramic

Method:  Hand-built 



This contemporary ceramic vessel by Masahiko Yamamoto exudes an ancient charm. Its asymmetrical body and a subtly constricted neck are organic in form. The vessel's surface showcases a tactile texture and a colour palette that modulates from a deep, earthy umber to a softer taupe stone hue, highlighting the ceramicist's mastery of glaze and form. The lip of the vessel is punctuated by its form and darker hue, offset by the haptic dimpled marks of the vessel's surface.


About the Artist

Masahiko Yamaoto’s work begins with digging, sourcing and collection clay from all over Japan. He says of the material “It’s not a matter of clay from here or there being good or bad as every place has its own character, its own unique qualities.” His process involves experimentation, learning about each type of clay and the best way to form and fire each type.

Although immersed in Japanese culture every day, Masahiko is influenced by a mix of different cultures, notably admiring creations from Southeast Asia. Masahiko’s experimentation and playful approach to clay as well as his eclectic inspirations creates exciting works that whilst rooted in Japanese pottery have bold character and an overall aesthetic unique to the artist.
